    Abstract:
    On the title page of ‘Guy of Warwick’, printed in 1661, the play is ascribed to ‘B. J.’. To date, scholars have agreed in seeing the initials as a spurious ascription to Ben Jonson. However, in this paper I argue that Jonson may indeed have had a hand in ‘Guy of Warwick', satirising Shakespeare as a Clown in response to Shakespeare’s own satirising of Jonson in ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’.
