This remarkable poem, dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I, was Spenser's finest achievement: the first epic poem in modern English. The Faerie Queene combines dramatic narratives of chivalrous adventure with exquisite and picturesque episodes of pageantry. At the same time, Spenser is expounding a deeply-felt allegory of the eternal struggle between Truth and Error. Download and start listening now!

    " The wheels have fallen off at this point in the poem. It's beautiful, but it is also messy. "

    " Book 6 is I think my least favorite of FQ. It has more political references and a less unified plot-line than the others. That said, it's still an enjoyable read, especially in the Hackett edition. "

    " There are some interesting fable-like stories. I'm don't really know what happened but there are a lot of igs and things that happen in the story. It's pretty and it made me think that it could a bit too violent. "
