It was inevitable that the playwrights of the Restoration should turn to Aristotle for guidance in how to write their plays. Dryden himself had already given the most spirited account of the theoretical debate in England with his dramatic dialogue An Essay of Dramatic Poesie in 1668—reprinted in 1684 and 1693 at the height of the ‘Battle of the Books’41—in which the Aristotelian position advocated by Crites is hotly contested by the advocates of other (French and English) positions within the debate.
