    DescriptionControversy raged through England during the 1570-80s as Puritans denounced all manner of games & pastimes as a danger to public morals. Writers quickly turned their attention to their own art and the first & most influential response came with Philip Sidney's "Defense". Here he set out to answer contemporary critics &, with reference to Classical models of criticism, formulated a manifesto for English literature. Also includes George Puttenham's "Art of English Poesy", Samuel Daniel's "Defense of Rhyme", & passages by writers such as Ben Jonson, Francis Bacon & George Gascoigne.
