"'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

Spenser's allegory : the anatomy of imagination by Isabel G MacCaffrey( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isabel MacCaffrey contends that, in allegory, the mind makes a model of itself, and she shows that The Faerie Queene, mirroring as it does the mind's structure, is both a treatise on and an example of the central role that imagination plays in human life.Viewing the poem as a model of Spenser's universe, the author investigates the poet's theory of knowledge and the role of imagination in the construction of cosmic models. She begins with a survey of theories of the imagination and the creation of fictions, establishing a context in which allegorical images may be understood throughout the European allegorical tradition to which The Faerie Queene belongs. Isabel MacCaffrey's new readings show that insofar as Spenser's poem concerns modes of knowledge, it offers the reader an anatomy of its own composition, an analysis of imagination in its varied relations to the world.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.
