Love's Welcome at Bolsover

Love's Welcome at Bolsover is the final masque composed by Ben Jonson. It was performed on 30 July 1634, three years before the poet's death, published in 1641; the masque was not produced by the Stuart Court in one of the royal palaces around London, as many of Jonson's notable early masques were. Rather it was staged by William Cavendish, 1st Duke of Newcastle at Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, in honor of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria. Newcastle had put on a Jonson masque for his royal visitors at Welbeck in Nottinghamshire the year before: The King's Entertainment at Welbeck, performed on 21 May 1633, it was such a success. The Duke spent between £14,000 and £15,000 on staging the Bolsover masque and providing for his royal guests and their attendants, more than double the £4,000 to £5,000 he'd spent for the Welbeck entertainment the previous year. In Love's Welcome, Jonson continued the mockery of Inigo Jones that he'd practiced for two decades, starting Bartholomew Fair and continuing through The Masque of Augurs, Neptune's Triumph for the Return of Albion, The Staple of News, A Tale of a Tub.

In this masque, Jones is "Colonel Iniquo Vitruvius." The masque was staged in what was called the "little castle" at Bolsover, a then-recent construction. The pillared hall there was furnished with five brilliantly-colored paintings on the theme of The Senses; the show was described by local witnesses as "stupendous," more than adequate to establish Newcastle's reputation as the greatest "prince...in all the northern quarter" of the kingdom. The most visually striking element in the masque lay in the two Cupids and Anteros, who descended "from the clouds" bearing fronds of palms; the masque was published in 1641 in the second folio collection of Jonson's works, was thereafter included in his canon, although it does not appear in Stephen Orgel's "Complete Masques of Ben Jonson". A manuscript text of the masque is extant, in the collection of Newcastle manuscripts. Kozuka, J. R. Mulryne, eds. Shakespeare, Jonson: New Directions in Biography. London, Ashgate, 2006.
