Every Man in His Humor

Publication Date: June 2, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

Technically, the term "humor" in this case refers not to the quality of being funny, but of a particular personality quirk that dominates a person's character. That said, I didn't really know that when I was reading the biographical information on Ben Jonson, and since I refuse to abandon Lit Brick's core principle (that the strips are literally whatever popped into my head while reading), I also refuse to rewrite comics for the sake of factual accuracy.

Also, I have a hard time reading anything by anyone named "Johnson" with shouting "HOWARD JOHNSON IS RIGHT!" to myself.

Author: Ben Jonson • Year: 1598 • Info: Wikipedia
