A Context for the Faerie Queene

Margaret Christian

Published by Manchester University Press

The Manchester Spenser MUP

  • Transports readers into the mindset of Elizabethans to allow an encounter with The Faerie Queene in a fresh and genuine way
  • Presents a wealth of relevant quotations from contemporary sources to demonstrate that Spenser situates The Faerie Queene within a commonly-agreed framework of biblical allegoresis
  • Juxtaposes Spenserian characters, from queens to courtiers to shepherds, with biblical characters understood to be types for the same Elizabethan figures
  • Offers fresh interpretations of many familiar episodes of The Faerie Queene with support from contemporary sources
