“For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.” 

― Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene

 

Edmund Spenser is one of the most well-known 16th-century English poets. His most-famous poem, ‘The Faerie Queene’ is one of fantasy and allegory that celebrated the Tudors and Queen Elizabeth. Spenser explores human emotion, consciousness, and conflict and drew much of his influence from Italian greats Ariosto and Tasso. He embodied Elizabethan values and British history, but he also wanted to have literary freedom balancing history and myth.

 

This beautiful five-volume first edition set of the works of Spenser was published by William Pickering in London – fine, leather-bound volumes.
