YSJU Literature: Jonson's Volpone, Live Reading

This bawdy, provocative and frankly vicious play follows the Machiavellian Volpone and his parasitic side-kick Mosca as they con and connive their way through renaissance Venice. Filled with razor sharp wit and cutting insults, Jonson’s play is an exciting, darkly comic and haunting tale, which you can see come to life in Week 5.
Join a group of staff and student volunteers as we read through Jonson's classic play.

As the play is being taught on 1EN600: Introduction to Literary Studies, staff and students came together to host a live reading of the play.
