The faerie queen : disposed into twelve books fashioning XII morall vertues by Edmund Spenser( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 1953 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'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
