A refreshing tale of good versus evil. This is the preferred edition Annotations are very helpful Makes it accessible to the younger reader. It s a tad lengthy. Of all of the classic English literature that I have read, The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser is among my favorites The funny thing is, I don t have that much love for reading poetry I can appreciate it for it s merits, but it s normally not my cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book length poem The main story is of the Redcrosse Knight and his lady love Una, a princess who has asked her betrothed to rid the kingdom of a terrible dragon Along the way they must face many challenges Of all of the classic English literature that I have read, The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser is among my favorites The funny thing is, I don t have that much love for reading poetry I can appreciate it for it s merits, but it s normally not my cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book length poem The main story is of the Redcrosse Knight and his lady love Una, a princess who has asked her betrothed to rid the kingdom of a terrible dragon Along the way they must face many challenges and much allegory, which makes for quite an entertaining tale My favorite part of the story is the Redcrosse Knight s experiences in the House of Pride Overall, this is a rich allegorical tale full of knights, princesses, and evil creatures of myth and legend all written in a beautifully constructed verse that flows wonderfully I haven t read any of the other books of the Faerie Queene, but Book 1 was fantastic This is a book that is a struggle to get through and understand, though Maynard s editing and footnotes are so helpful It is good to read an allegory different from Bunyan s this one is a little harder to grasp, but very good I am so glad I read it I learned a lot and found lovely and uplifting passages.
