Excerpt from Elizabethan Critical Essays, Vol. 2: Edited With an Introduction The Arte of English Poesie. Contrived into three Bookes: The first of Poets and Poesie, the second of Proportion, the third of Ornament was published without the author's name, in 1589, by 'Richard Field, dwelling in the black-Friers, neere Ludgate.' The text here printed follows Ben Jonson's copy, now in the British Museum. Many passages are underlined (especially in the opening chapters), and there are a few annotations; but it is extremely doubtful that any of these are by Ben Jonson. The copy also contains eight unnumbered -pages on the 'Device' and 'Anagram' (seep. 105), which were withdrawn while the volume was passing through the press: and it has the substituted passage in Book III, chap, xix, in place of the criticism of the Flemings, which occurs in some copies of this edition (see Notes). The Arte of English Poesie is anonymous, yet the evidence of Puttenham's authorship is, if not absolute, at least sufficiently strong to justify the ascription.
