The author considers the impact of Jesuit thinking on Renaissance England through a study of six poets of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Raspa argues that Jesuit poetry is an aesthetic version of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola and that the Order imposed by Ignatius to keep Catholicism alive during the Counter-Reformation profoundly influenced the six English Poets.
