ommercial theater, and prove that he was above the need to cater to the general public, and hence capable of writing with aristocratic taste in view. The fact that Bartholomew Fair was staged at court suggests that Jonson was using the opportunity to continue to mock tiffany rings the popular taste tiffany bracelets of the commercial theaters.See Sanders, Theatrical Republics, p. 103.But for once Jonson chooses to moderate and mitigate his critique of the commercial theater, as if he had come to appreciate how much it had contributed to his own success.
