Connection to Merchant of Venice
The Connection between Ben Jonson's works and "Merchant of Venice" come as the form of drama. "The Merchant of Venice" is a tragic comedy, and most of Jonson's works were comedic. The similarities fall short after that. Jonson chose to stay with his idea of decent theatre and not convert to a more Shakespearean form. This differentiated him, because he was among the few that did not try to copy Shakespeare's form.
