Meta: Writing about Writing:  Sidneys An Apology for Poetry makes
specific claims about the social function and power of another form of writing, namely, fictional works, which are included in his broad category of poetry (by which he means any fictional representation). Many other written texts weve studied like The tempest by shakespear, also comment on the nature, purpose, and/or relative power of writing (or fictional representation, or art) in some way, and sometimes those texts comment upon themselves directly (a poem that is
about poetry, or a play that is about playmaking). What claims does the text make about the nature, relative power and/or purpose of writing, or art, or playmaking, or fictional representation generally? If the text is about itself (meta), what claims does the text make about itself? Through what means (how) does the text make these claims?
