ENGL 71.03 The Faerie Queene

We’ll spend the term reading Spenser’s great epic romance, The Faerie Queene. It’s a wonderful poem, deeply engaged with philosophical, poetic, ethical, and political issues via compelling stories, fantastic settings, and provocative descriptions. Shakespeare, Milton, James Joyce, Monty Python and Neil Gaiman are on the long list of the poem’s keen readers. Experience with sixteenth century literature is not required. Spenser's language is deliberately archaic at times, but it is not difficult for modern readers. Discussion, informal writing, short papers (2-3pp), oral presentations, and an open topic essay leading to a final paper.
