Curse upon a God

Abstract

Ben Jonson's "An Execration upon Vulcan" is an excellent example of how the poet blended classical styles with those of seventeenth-century England. Written after Jonson's library burned, the poem cursing the Vulcan God is a subtle satire of classical and Elizabethan forms as well as the popular literature of Jonson's day.
