Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Ben Jonson's comedy, one of the finest of the Jacobean era.

Volpone is a Venetian aristocrat, a loveable rogue who enjoys the cunning pursuit of wealth more than money itself. Pretending to be mortally ill, he watches as his greedy neighbours swarm around him with expensive gifts in the hope of inheriting his fortune.

Volpone was premiered by the King's Men at the Globe Theatre, London, in 1606.

This edition of Volpone, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is edited by R.B.Parker, and introduced by Colin Counsell.
