The presence of a maze in an early masque, Beauty (1608), and in a second from Jonson's middle period, Pleasure Reconciled (1618), would be balanced by a third in the late masque Love's Triumph through Callipolis (1631).
Socrates, using the word in his redescription of Book 5, prepares us for the tensions that will explode in the transformation of Callipolis to the regime that loves honor (philotimon), which he chooses to call "timocracy" (545b): the deep split between male and female, between what is public and what is private, between an unmoving present and a world of motion.
Callipolis had tried to transcend the categories of male and female by which we compartmentalize humans, impose eide on them, creating realms of public and of private at war with one another.
In Callipolis, the conflation of male and female precluded such language.
13) The rise of oligarchy exacerbates distinctions between groups within the city; oligarchy is a city torn within itself, divided into two factions, lacking the cohesion of Callipolis, on the one hand, and the openness and freedom from compulsion that we find in democracy, on the other.
From the central theme of Callipolis, the koinon, the sharing of friends, property, and family, we move to a privatized world.
Consequently, democracy provides the setting in which Socrates can imagine a multiplicity of regimes, including, of course, Callipolis.
In Callipolis, the regime of necessity, there was no uncertainty about form; that uncertainty becomes the underlying principle of democracy.
The parallel to the mingling of the sexes practicing gymnastics in the palaestra in Callipolis is striking, but the similarity derives from opposite impulses.
This fluidity and malleability, this absence of eide, attractive in its abstraction from the compulsion that marked Callipolis, nevertheless creates an underlying unease as Socrates clarifies the dangers inherent in this formlessness.
31) And we still find possible traces of the furori in one of Jonson's latest masques, Love's Triumph Through Callipolis, performed in 1631 shortly before his quarrel with Inigo Jones.
