This mode permits Dryden to recognise the real differences between French and English drama, Virgilian and Ovidian style, judgement and fancy (to take some of the more familiar from among Drydens typical conjunctive pairs), without either merging their differences into some grand synthesis or transforming them into mutually exclusive antitheses.

Drydens is above all a comprehensive theory of literature which aims at responding to a broad range of various literary styles, genres, faculties and effects. Drydens balance is classical, the poise of the golden mean, and Professor Pechter endeavours to give fresh life to classical as an epithet often previously applied to Dryden. Ranging among writers in ancient Greece and Rome and among Drydens contemporaries in England and France, the author outlines a rich literary tradition within which Drydens criticism is more easily appreciated and better understood.
