    Ben Johnson

    Hello!

    Please tell me is Ben Johnson's play "Alchemist" related to comedy of manner or comedy of humour or both are same for the play?

    Re: Ben Johnson

    Ben Jonson's The Alchemist does not seem to me as good an example of the comedy of humours as some of his other plays. I would not particularly call it a comedy of manners either.

    However, there are scenes in Volpone and The Alchemist which look forward to the comedy of manners in the Restoration playwrights.
