Subject: Jonson/Jones Feud
I am writing about the Ben Jonson / Inigo Jones feud and would like to
communicate offlist with anyone who may have some thoughts about this
occurrence. In particular, I am trying to better understand the enigmatic Mr.
Jones who, it is said, liked to demonstrate his physical skills by jumping over
chairs at social gatherings, but was a coward with a sword. Does anyone out
there have a sense of Jones' personality? Is there a more appropriate list to
direct these questions?
Any help at all would be appreciated.
