Description : Edmund Spenser: A Life is the first biography of the most important poet of the English Renaissance for sixty years. Spenser is best known as the author of The Faerie Queene, but he is arguably the most innovative and experimental poet writing in English before the twentieth century and his great achievement has overshadowed the range, volume and quality of his work in The Shepheardes Calender, The Complaints, andThe Amoretti and Epithalamion.

Description : Edmund Spenser (?1554-99) was the greatest Elizabethan poet, whose Shepheardes Calender (1579) inaugurated a revolution in English poetry, and whose unfinished Faerie Queene (1590-6) was the longest and most accomplished poem written in the sixteenth century. In his approachable and informative study, Colin Burrow clarifies the genres and conventions at work in Spenser's poem. He explores the poet's taste for archaism and allegory, and the nature of epic and of heroism in The Faerie Queene. He presents Spenser as a 'Renaissance' poet who is drawn at once to images of vital rebirth and of mortal frailty. In clear, jargon-free prose he examines Spenser's equivocal relationship with his Queen and with the Irish landscape in which he spent his mature years. Spenser emerges from this book a less orthodox and harmonious poet than he is often thought to be, but as a complex, thoughtful, and attractive writer.

Description : Edmund Spenser's censored attacks on Lord Burghley (Elizabeth I's powerful first minister) serve as the basis for a reassessment of the poet's mid-career, challenging the dates of canonical texts, the social and personal contexts for scandalous topical allegories, and the new historicist portrait of Spenser's 'worship' of power and state ideology.

Description : Edmund Spenser's epic poem The Faerie Queene (1590–96) occupied an important place in eighteenth-century culture. Spenser influenced almost every major writer of the century, from Alexander Pope to William Wordsworth. What was it like to read Spenser in the eighteenth century? Who made Spenserian books, and how did their owners use and interpret them? The first comprehensive study of all of the eighteenth-century editions of Edmund Spenser addresses these questions through bibliographical analysis, and through examination of the history of the book and of eighteenth-century literature and culture. Within these contexts, Hazel Wilkinson provides new information about the production, contents, texts, and reception of the eighteenth-century editions of Spenser, to illuminate how his cultural presence became so far-reaching. With each chapter structured around a major edition of Spenser's work, this volume provides a timely addition to arguments about the nature of literary history and the growing cult of great writers of the past.

Description : Edmund Spenser's poetry remains an indispensable touchstone of English literary history. Yet for modern readers his deliberate use of archaic language and his allegorical mode of writing can become barriers to understanding his poetry. This volume of thirty-seven essays, written by distinguished scholars, offers a rich introduction to the literary, political and religious contexts that shaped Spenser's poetry, including the environment in which he lived, the genres he drew upon, and the influences that helped to fashion his art. The collection reveals the multiple personae that Spenser constructs within his work: to read Spenser is to read a rich archive of literary forms, and this volume provides the contexts in which to do so. A further reading list at the end of the volume will prove invaluable to further study.

Description : Concerned primarily with The Faerie Oueene, to which the extensive bibliog­raphy is devoted, these original essays constitute an important statement on twentieth-century Spenser studies. The eight United States and Canadian scholars who contributed to this volume reflect no particular point of view, nor espouse any single technique, approach, or subject matter. Taken together, how­ever, the essays prove to be remarkably consonant in their twentieth-century view of Spenser's capaciousness. The contribu­tors, in addition to the editors, are Rudolf B. Gottfried, A. C. Hamilton, S. K. Hen­inger, Jr., A. Kent Hieatt, Carol V. Kaske, and Foster Provost. Students of Renaissance English litera­ture will find that the volume is not only an important reference work but also an extremely useful overview of the entire range of Spenserian scholarship.

Description : Despite all of his acknowledged greatness, almost no one reads Edmund Spenser (1552-99) anymore. Roy Maynard takes the first book of the 'Faerie Queene, ' exploring the concept of Holiness with the character of the Redcross Knight, and makes Spenser accessible again. He does this not by dumbing it down, but by deftly modernizing the spelling, explaining the obscurities in clever asides, and cuing the reader towards the right response. In today's cultural, aesthetic, and educational wars, Spenser is a mighty ally for twenty-first century Christians. Maynard proves himself a worthy mediator between Spenser's time and ours.

Description : Perhaps ambivalence shapes all creative souls. In the case of the career of Elizabethan poet Spenser (1552-1599), Oram (Smith College) contends that Spenser's mixed relationship with the court of Elizabeth I informed his self-image as a poet. Dependent upon this patron for approval and land ownership, yet wishing to be more than a literary court jester, he extended his English poetic heritage with experimental forays into nearly every nondramatic genre. His epic, The Faerie Queen is critiqued in the context of related shorter works--in the order in which they were published; his legacy is briefly discussed.
