Every Man in His Humour Summary

The play belongs to the subgenre of the " humours comedy ," in which each major character is dominated by an over-riding humour or obsession. All the available evidence indicates that the play was performed by the Lord Chamberlain's Men in at the Curtain Theatre. That date is given in the play's reprint in Jonson's folio collection of his works; the text of the play IV,iv,15 contains an allusion to John Barrose, a Burgundian fencer who challenged all comers that year and was hanged for murder on 10 July The play was also acted at Court on 2 February A theatre legend first recorded in by Nicholas Rowe has it that Shakespeare advocated production of the play at a point when the company was about to reject it. While this legend is unverifiable, it is almost certain, based on the playlist published in the folio , that Shakespeare played the part of Kno'well, the aged father.

The parents are bound to disapprove! With all these "humours" overflowing, humor is sure to ensue! Ben Jonson was the stepson of a bricklayer, his father having died a month before his birth, and he briefly entered this trade after leaving school — something his enemies never permitted him to forget. He soon escaped by joining the wars in the Netherlands where he killed an enemy soldier in single combat and made off with his battlefield trophies. The next year he killed Gabriel Spenser, a fellow actor, in a duel, for which he was again imprisoned and escaped death only by the legal ploy of benefit of clergy; he forfeited his property and received a brand on his left thumb. None of these events seemed to hamper his theatrical career, as his first play, Every Man in His Humour , was produced the same year. After he became famous at court for his masques until he quarreled with Inigo Jones, the great designer of these masques.
