Edmund Spenser

A Life

Andrew Hadfield

  • In the first biography of the poet for sixty years, Spenser emerges as a much more complex and combative figure than has often been assumed
  • Shows that Spenser's writing was often deeply rooted in his own experience
  • Fills in details of a whole series of networks in which Spenser lived and operated and shows that soldiers, administrators, publishers, and civil servants were as important to him as writers
  • Explores how vital Spenser's Irish experience was in forming his literary imagination
