Come on. Let's go. How about a nice, juicy, intelligent discussion about Jacobean comedy? What do you say?

I consider Jacobean comedy to be more represented by Thomas Dekker and Ben Jonson than by Shakespeare. Even though many scholars say that Merchant of Venice is a Jacobean comedy. What do you think? Who are players here before we discuss? I need some clarification.

Isn't Jacobean the period that followed Elizabethan? I thought it was named for King James I who became king after the death of Elizabeth. If that's true, then all plays during that time (comedy or drama) would be considered Jacobean.

Yes. Jacobean pertains to the reign of King James I - from 1603 to (I'm guessing) - 1623. Shakespeare had pretty wrapped up his comedies by 1603 so his work is never really considered Jacobean comedy. Jacobean drama definitely. And Merchant of Venice was in 1597 I believe, so I don't think it would ever be considered Jacobean. If Shakespeare had written comedies during this period, we probably wouldn't talk so much about Ben Jonson and Thomas Dekker. But they definitely filled a void during that time because Shakespeare was doing really heavy stuff.

What's your deal, MustangJimmy? You come in here and start a lofty/cerebral topic like Jacobean Comedy and then you don't back it up? Come on... bring it on, dude!

There's nothing I like better on the weekend before the New Year than a really good discussion on Jacobean comedy. That's my kind of fun!

For one thing, Thomas Dekker is totaly underrated... Shoemaker's Holiday is a classic that should be revived as often as The Taming of the Shrew...

There have been huge promises of a great Jacobean Comedy thread but it's never worked out. Is this going to happen or not?!

Thanks for the definition MichaelMon, I would have been lost without it. In fact, I'm still lost. Nevermind.

Sure, it's Sunday. Sure, there is football on and baseball is exciting this time of year, and there's internet porn... but wouldn't it be more exciting to discuss Jacobean comedy right now?
