First produced in 1609, "'The Silent Woman' is a gigantic farce of the most ingenious construction. The whole comedy hinges on a huge joke, played by a heartless nephew on his misanthropic uncle, who is induced to take
to himself a wife, young, fair, and warranted silent, but who, in
the end, turns out neither silent nor a woman at all." Here, after a huge introduction, is The Project Gutenberg Etext of "Epicoene: Or, The Silent Woman" by Ben Jonson http://www.gutenberg.org/files/4011/4011-h/4011...
