...Ben Jonson’s Volpone many of the characters disguise themselves literally and philosophically. The lead character, Volpone, plays the role of an old sickly man. He then actually does physically wear a disguise as Scoto the Mountebank and as a guard towards the end. The characters of Volpone, Mosca, Voltore, Corbaccio, and Corvino all use the disguise of pretending to achieve a goal. In the end, all of the disguises used are stripped away. All of the disguises portrayed in Volpone reflect the inner personality of the characters. The first disguise was Volpone’s fake illnesses to fool Voltore, Corbaccio, and Corvino into believing they have a chance to...
