Ben Jonson wrote a comedy " Every man in his humor" which had William Shakespeare in it  He gave shakespeare hi most enduring epitaph: " He was not of an age, but for all the time" 
"Jonson and Shakespeare had compliccated rivalries William and Ben came to a truce on their dipute and came close around 1609
They spent a bunch of time together
They acted like brothers
Ben Jonson found hime self champion of intellectualism.
Ben jonson and William Shakspeare both worte plays but they both wrote comedies
They were both born in England
Shakespeare  gave Ben Jonson his recognition and popularity
