"'The Faerie Queene' is an incomplete English epic poem by Edmund Spenser. The first half was published in 1590, and a second installment was published in 1596. 'The Faerie Queene' is notable for its form: it is one of the longest poems in the English language and the origin of a verse form that came to be known as Spenserian stanza. It is an allegorical work, and can be read (as Spenser presumably intended) on several levels of allegory, including as praise of Queen Elizabeth I. In a completely allegorical context, the poem follows several knights in an examination of several virtues. In Spenser's 'Letter of the Authors,' he states that the entire epic poem is 'cloudily enwrapped in allegorical devices,' and that the aim of publishing 'The Faerie Queene' was to 'fashion a gentleman or noble person in virtuous and gentle discipline'"--Wikipedia, viewed on November 4, 2015

"The Faerie Queene is one of the masterpieces of English literature, and has influenced, inspired and challenged generations of writers, readers and scholars since its completion in 1596. However, its epic length, its prodigality of incident and detail, the complexity of its allegory and richness of its topical allusions make it one of the hardest texts to understand. Few works demand or repay introduction and annotation as much. Professor Hamilton's work, first published in 1977 and substantially revised in 2001, was the first complete critical edition widely available. The entire work is revised, and the text of The Faerie Queene itself has been freshly edited, the first such edition since the 1930s." "Hamilton provides full and careful annotation of the text, detailed guidance to critical comment past and present, and a wealth of introductory material setting the poem in its historical and literary context. This edition also includes additional original material which includes a chronology, a letter to Raleigh, commendatory verses, and dedicatory sonnets. A list of characters and their appearances has also been compiled by Shohachi Fukuda, listing their place in the poem and commentary on the names."--BOOK JACKET
