Jongsook Lee has some provocative and non-new-historical things to say on these
matters in *Ben Jonson's Poesis* (UP of Virginia, 1989).

THANK YOU JAMES MCKENNA. No, no offense taken (alas, I'm getting
used to it). Yes, Jonson is a deeply royalist thinker. I find more
ambiguity in Queens than you do--see my piece in SOLICITING
INTERPRETATION that I cited in my last. I think the big point is
that Jonson identifies himself with the king--this becomes
quite clear in Queens. Jonathan Goldberg writes well about it in
JAMES I AND THE POLITICS OF LITERATURE.  You might also look at
Joe Loewenstein's brilliant book, much of which is on the masque.
I don't have the title in my head, but it's his only book. Also
Leah Marcus, THE POLITICS OF MIRTH. And David Bergeron has a good
bibliography of masque stuff, from about ten years ago.
 
Best, S.O.
