Author: Jonson, Ben
For centuries in London, the Plague presented a very real danger to its citizens. However, some people were more concerned with other, moral dangers that city life offered, like prostitution, alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, or cony-catching. In The Alchemist, Ben Jonson presents the interesting idea that not only the Plague thrives within the populated city, but vice also flourishes.
The Alchemist is set in London in 1610.
