Excerpts from Puttenham

The portions of Puttenham's Arte of English Poesie most relevant to Oxfordian claims are available below. Nothing has been omitted from these excerpts. To make Puttenham's text easier to read, I have modernized the spelling, inserted apostrophes into possessives, and added quotation marks and some paragraph breaks. I have not otherwise changed the punctuation.

The University of Virginia has made available online the complete old-spelling text of The Arte of English Poesie. (The file is 600 kilobytes in size, so be patient.)
