He is best known for his plays Volpone and The Alchemist and his lyric poems.

This commitment entailed negations: after The Case is Altered, Jonson eschewed distant locations, noble characters, romantic plots, and other staples of Elizabethan comedy, focussing instead on the satiric and realistic inheritance of new comedy. He set his plays in contemporary settings, peopled them with recognizable types, and set them to Born: circa 11 June Westminster, London, England.
