Sir Philip Sidney
Teach and Delight
printer friendly version
Poesy . . . is an art of imitation, for so Aristotle termeth it
in the word mimesis?that is to say, a representing, counterfeiting,
or figuring forth?to speak metaphorically, a speaking picture?
with this end to teach and delight.

(from "The Defence of Poesy")
