Comment: Re: SHK 14.2324 Ben Jonson Journal
Thanks Ed, that does help too, and your work on the play sounds sort of
fascinating, perhaps the time to polish it up and publish is near.
Especially if they ever finish the planned movie, Foucault's Pendulum
from the Eco book. There will be a renewed interest in alchemy no doubt
and, perhaps in Ben's great play.
As for Erasmus, after I finished the Alchemy Scam, I realized it was not
on par nor informative towards Ben's work at all. It reminded me more of
Tartuffe as it was about religious hypocrisy on the whole.
