Sejanus: His Fall 

by Ben Jonson 

Transcriber's note: This play is based on events that happend a
millenia and a half before Jonson wrote it.  Jonson added 247
scholarly footnotes to this play; all were in Latin (except
for a scattering of Greek).  They, and the Greek quotation which
forms Tiberius Caesar's tag line in Scene II, Act II, have been
elided. 

INTRODUCTION 

THE greatest of English dramatists except Shakespeare, the first
literary dictator and poet-laureate, a writer of verse, prose,
satire, and criticism who most potently of all the men of his time
affected the subsequent course of English letters: such was Ben
Jonson, and as such his strong personality assumes an interest to
us almost unparalleled, at least in his age.
