You'll be pleased to know that Master Jonson is not just obscene, scatological, and derogatory, he's also anal-erotic.
When was this book written? 1989?
Good lord, there's no excuse.
Riggs is attributing the word "playwright" to Ben (yes, playwright, not playmaker or playmender or poet) in the Epigrams. So too lazy to look that up.
Says he only uses it in a derogatory sense, though.
