Faerie Queene: A Reader's Guide by Elizabeth Heale

Book Description

The Faerie Queene is the first great epic poem in the English language. It is a long and complex allegory, which presents the first-time reader with many difficulties of allusion and interpretation. This book is the only convenient and up-to-date guide to Spenser's poem, and is designed as a handbook to be consulted by students while reading the poem. Each chapter is devoted to a separate book of the poem, and sub-sections treat particular episodes or sequences of episodes in detail. Dr Heale considers fully the religious and political context, and pays due attention to the variety of Spenser's literary techniques. She encourages close reading of the poem and a lively awareness of both its rich detail and the intricate interrelation of its episodes. This revised edition takes account of recent developments in Spenserian criticism, and brings the guidance on further reading up to date.

Autobiography and Authorship in Renaissance Verse by Elizabeth Heale Autobiography and Authorship in Renaissance Verse, Hardback (December 2002)

The advent of relatively cheap editions of poetry in the mid-16th century produced an explosion of verse, much of which represented the first person speaker as a version of the author. This work examines ways in which writers harnessed verse for self-promotional purposes.
