The Faerie Queene is one of the great seminal masterpieces of English literature, and has influenced, inspired and challenged generations of writers, readers and scholars since its completion in 1596. Its vigorous narrative and colorful descriptions make it appear superficially one of the most accessible of major works; but it is perhaps the hardest of all to come to grips with, because of its epic length, its prodigality of incident and detail, the complexity of its allegory and the richness of its topical allusions. Few works so much demand or repay introduction and annotation - yet there had been no adequate complete critical edition available for the scholar, student or general reader until Professor Hamilton's edition, itself a work of major scholarship, appeared in 1977. It provides exceptionally 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 full historical and literary context. Now the eagerly-awaited paperback version makes the full richness and intricacy of the great poem accessible to students and poetry lovers everywhere. -- from back cover
