Question:

Whose experiments in quantitative verse and syllable-based poetics inspired Samuel Daniel's counter Defense of Rhyme in 1603?

Answer ->

Thomas Campion's. His position in his 1602 Observations in the Art of English Poesy prefigured many of the twentieth century ideas about syllables as the source of a prosody instead of accentual emphasis.
