This chapter takes as its major premiss that Shakespeare persistently returned to his own earlier works, and reformulated them. It begins with Shakespeare’s role in Jonson’s Every Man in His Humour in which the figure of the jealous merchant Thorello appears. The recurrence of this meme is traced through exemplary comedies, tragedies and tragicomedies, exploring the ways in which the Jonsonian figure and his predicament were diffused throughout the Shakespeare oeuvre.
