About the Authors
  • This book was compiled by Alastair Fowler from notes left by C. S. Lewis at his death. It is Lewis's longest piece of literary criticism, as distinct from literary history. It approaches The Faerie Queene as a majestic pageant of the universe and nature, celebrating God as 'the glad creator', and argues that conventional views of epic and allegory must be modified if the poem is to be fully enjoyed and understood.

    • A classic piece of literary criticism focused on Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene
    • Offers an essential guide to this complex poem and challenges conventional views of epic and allegory
    • Compiled by Alastair Fowler from lecture notes left by C. S. Lewis at his death
