as he walks to Scotland!

8 July to 5 October 2013

“In early July of 1618 Ben Jonson – famous poet and dramatist, favourite of King James and friend to William Shakespeare – set out on foot for his ancestral Scotland. He reached Edinburgh in September, and spent several months in James’s northern kingdom. He was greeted as a celebrity, widely feted, and enjoyed the hospitality of prominent Scots including William Drummond of Hawthornden, who recorded as much as he could of Jonson’s gossipy and provocative conversation.”
