SIDNEY'S " APOLOGY FOR POETRY" The book provides Sidney’s views on poetic creation. Then it talks about how Sidney defences imagination in his treatise. This essay concentrates on the topic of imagination and provides a conclusion that imagination is the core of poetry. Sidney’s apology is more than a defence. It put forth his concept of imagination in poetry. Sidney in his treatise depicts the concern of all the writers for the preservation of creativity in any piece of work. More than the style, he talks about the imitation of nature, in his work.. Sidney’s argument that imagination is the core of literature depicts the influence of renaissance on him.Sidney stresses two main aspects of literature in his treatise. They are the nature, and function of literature. Sidney says that poetry is better than other branches of literature, because it seeks the aid of imagination in creating a piece of work. The function of poetry is to delight, and teach. Sidney points out that literature can delight the readers, only when a little amount of imagination enhances it..
