Jonson's Irredeemable Society

Auther : Nuaiman Uthman

Critics seem generally to agree that Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair differs in its morality from his other comedies. It is claimed that it concerns itself with the mere follies of society, and that it does not rise to the high moral attitudes adopted in Jonson’s other comedies. Critics support this view by referring to the induction to the play which says that this play is made to delight all and offend none.

Critics often consider the ending of Bartholomew Fair as a deviation from the strict morality usually adopted by jonson, because the moral problem is left unsolved.

This paper refutes such views and proposes that Bartholomew Fair does not differ from Jonson’s other dramas either in its outlook on society or in its hope of reform. It may even be said that it has a more positive attitude towards society in spite of the apparent lack of strict morality and of able executives of such morality.
