Edmund Spenser

Kindle, ePub

Widely regarded as one of the greatest poets of the English language, Edmund Spenser is famous for ‘The Faerie Queene’, an epic poem and fantastical allegory celebrating the Tudor dynasty. Spenser’s verse was notable for its premier craftsmanship and lyrical beauty, while his poetic innovations, such as the Spenserian stanza, would have a lasting impression on English literature. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature's finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents the complete works of the Elizabethan poet Edmund Spenser, with beautiful illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
