13), and in verses to his friend William Roe who was setting off on his foreign travels spoke principally about the pleasures that would attend his homecoming (Epigrams, 128). Why should this man have undertaken such a remarkable journey at this particular moment in his career? ‘He is to write his foot pilgrimage here, and call it A Discovery,’ noted William Drummond while Ben Jonson was staying with him at Hawthornden (Informations, 317). Had Jonson’s account of his journey survived, perhaps this episode in his career would seem less mysterious than it does at present, but this work was evidently destroyed by fire in 1623, along with other papers and books from his personal library.

Cavendish was a passionate horseman, and at Bolsover Jonson watched in fascination as their host—as the diarist notes, in a rare moment of reported speech—‘rid his great horse, which he did with that readiness and steadiness as my gossip say they were both one piece’. Jonson was to repeat this last phrase in an epigram on Newcastle’s horsemanship, The Underwood, 53: When first, My Lord, I saw you back your horse, Provoke his mettle, and command his force To all the uses of the field and race, Methought I read the ancient art of Thrace, And saw a centaur, past those tales of Greece; So seemed your horse and you both of a piece!

Both were thus in an important sense outsiders to the world of the court and aristocracy, with which each nevertheless came in time to enjoy a special and intimate relationship. Horace’s double role—enjoying entre´e into the world of the court, but (when he wished) strategic distance from it at his Sabine farm—seemed especially enviable to Jonson. Horace, so Jonson wrote, was ‘a man so gracious and in high favour with the emperor, as Augustus often called him his witty manling, for the littleness of his stature; and if we may trust antiquity, had designed him for a secretary of estate, and invited him to the palace, which he modestly prayed off, and refused’ (Discoveries, 1855–9).
