Item description for Selections from The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser & John Moffatt...

"The Faerie Queene" was the first epic in English and one of the most influential poems in the language for later poets from Milton to Tennyson. Dedicating his work to Elizabeth I, Spenser brilliantly united medieval romance and renaissance epic to expound the glory of the Virgin Queen. The poem recounts the quests of knights including Sir Guyon, Knight of Constance, who resists temptation, and Artegall, Knight of Justice, whose story alludes to the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. Composed as an overt moral and political allegory, "The Faerie Queene", with its dramatic episodes of chivalry, pageantry and courtly love, is also a supreme work of atmosphere, colour and sensuous description.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Edmund Spenser was born in London in 1552, and was educated at the Merchant Taylor s School from which he proceeded to Cambridge. He wrote his first poem, The Shepheardes Calender, in 1579. In 1580 he went to Ireland as secretary to Lord Grey de Wilton, Lord Deputy of Ireland, and stayed there most of his remaining life. While at his estate in County Cork, Spenser acquainted himself with his neighbor, Sir Walter Ralegh, who in 1589 brought him to London to present three books of The Faerie Queene (1590) to its dedicatee, Queen Elizabeth. After his return to Ireland in 1591, his two volumes Complaints and Daphnaida were published in London. His marriage to Elizabeth Boyle was celebrated in his sonnet sequence Amoretti and Epithalamion (1595), and in the same year his pastoral eclogue, Colin Clouts Come Home Again also appeared. In 1596 he brought out the second three books of The Faerie Queene as well as his Fowre Hymnes and Prothalamion. In 1598 his estate was burned during the Tyrone rebellion, and he fled to Cork and thence to London where he died in 1599. He was buried in Westminster Abbey. He is considered to be the great precursor of Milton, andhis fame, denied him in life, has endured to this day.

Roche, Jr., Professor of English at Princeton University, was born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1931 and was educated at Yale, Cambridge, and Princeton and has taught at Princeton since 1960.

Reviews - What do customers think about Selections from The Faerie Queene?

Selections from The Faerie Queene review  May 12, 2007
I thought the reader did an excellent job. I had listened to the Canterbury Tales and I liked this even better. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in poetry. I think it is a must read or listen as the case may be.
Not an Unabridged Edition  May 9, 2006
This three CD set (ISBN: 962634377X, Naxos 2006) is not unabridged. It appears, in fact to be a re-issue of the 1998 Naxos three CD set (ISBN: 9626341599). It is, however very well done, beautifully read by John Moffat.
