Summary

Responding to issues raised by other essays in the collection, the Afterword considers Jonson’s place on the contemporary global stage and imagines him working in the world of social media. Speculating about how he might have conducted himself on Facebook and Twitter, Sanders suggests that Jonson the self-publicist would have seized on these modes of modern celebrity with creative relish. The Afterword goes on to consider Jonson in the modern theatre and questions of canon. Finally, it addresses some of the challenges and opportunities for Jonson's future afterlives.
