Where is Ben Jonson buried?

0

In the floor of Westminster Abbey is a tiny stone marking the burial place of the British Renaissance playwright and poet Ben Jonson (1572-1637). Despite enjoying respectable success in the arts and serving as a major influence on seventeenth-century poets, the death of King James I ended Jonson’s period of court favor. Jonson was too poor to pay for the normal grave space, so he is buried standing up.
