Ben Jonson uses his 1600's playwriting style similar to Shakespeare's language. He used the Literary technique of using Sonnets to express his playwrites. His language is Shakespearean language to express his feelings towards the theme of Greed and Parasitism in the same way that Shakespeare uses his own created languages to show the similarity of his works to our current world in the sense of Social Commentary. The references following will help to explain more about the techniques that Jonson and Shakespeare use in their own playwrites at that time in the Literary World.
