Description

No introduction or even encyclopedia can cover every angle of a work, but the introductions here give extensive and thorough coverage to what (I think) Spenser himself regarded as most important about his own work. The marginal glosses are sufficient without being overwhelming, as are the explanatory notes, handily provided at the bottom of the page.

I have not had a chance to thoroughly go over the book yet, but it seems to be a great resource for those who like Edmund Spenser's poetry like I do. :) I read part of the Faerie Queene in school, and am looking forward to finishing the story and reading his other works. One of my favorite poems of his, "Most Glorious Lord of Life," is a part of this collection. I would recommend this book for all poetry lovers.

I had this text in my Spenser class when I was a student at the University of California in the late 70s. The introduction is great, but the editors chose to modernize and regularize Spenser's spelling and sometimes even his diction, such as turning the original "moniment" at the end of the Epithalamion to "monument." As an English professor now, I can only think that these editorial changes were not a good idea.

I wish Kellogg and Steele had produced a complete edition of "The Faerie Queene," as this partial edition is, in my opinion, the best presentation the poem has ever had for undergraduates or other beginning adult readers. No introduction or even encyclopedia can cover every angle of a work, but the introductions here give extensive and thorough coverage to what (I think) Spenser himself regarded as most important about his own work. The marginal glosses are sufficient without being overwhelming, as are the explanatory notes, handily provided at the bottom of the page. The spelling is modernized (a great convenience for the beginner), but the language is NOT modernized--the vocabulary is exactly as Spenser left it. This is really a model edition for undergraduates or anyone else who wants to come at the poem at that level.
