Beaumont and Fletcher playwrights who collaborated on dramatic works from about 1606 - 1613. Dryden, in his Of Dramatick Poesy (1668), notes that "Beaumont especially being so accurate a judge of plays that Ben Jonson, while he lived, submitted all his writing to his [Beaumont's] censure, and, 'tis thought, used his judgement in correcting, if not contriving, all his plots".
