About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1919, this book contains three stories taken from Spenser's The Faerie Queene: the story of the Knight of the Red Cross or of Holiness, the story of Sir Guyon or of Temperance, and the story of Britomart. Minna Steele Smith supplies an introduction with background on Spenser's life, the stories in his unfinished epic and his use of allegory. All the stories are written in readable, modern English. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in early modern poetry.
