Not as well known today as Volpne and The Alchemist, this comedy of London’s lower classes was a great favorite of Ben Jonson’s contemporaries. The richness of its comic invention and the complexity of its plot and satirical view have returned it to its former high repute, and Professor Waith’s skillful and illuminating critical Introduction vividly demonstrates its artistic excellence. The high standards for textual accuracy and critical apparatus set for Volpone, the first volume of the Yale edition of Ben Jonson, are maintained here, and the format is identical. In addition, the editor has supplied an appendix and the original staging of the play that assists the reader greatly and is in itself a valuable contribution to studies of Elizabethan and Jacobean stagecraft. Eugene M. Waith is professor of English at Yale University. The Yale Ben Jonson, 2.

To the residents of Miguel Street, a derelict corner of Trinidad’s capital, their neighbourhood is a complete world, where everybody is quite different from everybody else. There’s Popo the carpenter, who neglects his livelihood to build “the thing without a name;” Man-man, who goes from running for public office to staging his own crucifixion; Big Foot, the dreaded bully with glass tear ducts; and the lovely Mrs. Hereira, in thrall to her monstrous husband. Their lives (and the legends their neighbours construct around them) are rendered by V. S. Naipaul with Dickensian verve and Chekhovian compassion in this tender, funny novel. From the Trade Paperback edition.
