The Faerie Queene was the first epic in English and one of the most influential poems in the language for later poets from Milton to Tennyson. Dedicating his work to Elizabeth I, Spenser brilliantly united medieval romance and renaissance epic to expound the glory of the Virgin Queen. The poem recounts the quests of knights including Sir Guyon, Knight of Constance, who resists temptation, and Artegall, Knight of Justice, whose story alludes to the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. Composed as an overt moral and political allegory, The Faerie Queene, with its dramatic episodes of chivalry, pageantry and courtly love, is also a supreme work of atmosphere, colour and sensuous description.

»Ein kleines psychologisches und soziales Gemälde« nannte Henry James den Roman »Die Schätze von Poynton«, der 1897 erschien und über dessen Entstehung und Entwicklung er so ausführlich wie über keines seiner anderen Bücher in den »Notebooks« berichtet hat.Der Roman spielt auf einem englischen Landsitz und im London der Jahrhundertwende. Zwischen der verwitweten Mrs. Gereth und ihrer zukünftigen – unerwünschten – Schwiegertochter Mona Brigstock entbrennt ein Kampf um den kleinen, doch mit erlesenen, wertvollen Kunstgegenständen eingerichteten Landsitz Poynton, der nach dem Tode ihres Mannes nicht an Mrs. Gereth, sondern an ihren einzigen Sohn Owen fiel. Ihr Leben lang hat Mrs. Gereth mit Geschmack und Kunstverständnis die Schätze für Poynton zusammengetragen, und sie möchte das alles nun nicht einer Schwiegertochter überlassen, die in ihren Augen eine Banausin ist, dumm, ohne Geschmack und Stilgefühl. Mehr sagt Mrs. Gereth schon Fleda Vetch zu, sie ist zwar mittellos, doch mit ungewöhnlicher Sensibilität, Geschmack und Einbildungskraft begabt.

While The Faerie Queene is his masterpiece, Edmund Spenser showed his supreme versatility and skill as eulogist, satirist, pastoral poet, and prophet in his shorter poetry. This new edition demonstrates the point. Included in this volume are The Shepheardes Calender, twelve poems that mark a turning point in literary history, as the anonymous author confidently asserts his faith in the native vigor of the English language; the Amoretti and Hymnes, which reveal an acute sense of how erotic and even religious love are shot through with vanity and narcissism; Mother Hubberds Tale, an Elizabethan Animal Farm; and the Epithalamion, a rare celebration of consummated desire that is offset by far darker echoes. To assist readers with Spenser's many allusions to biblical, classical, and contemporary literature, Richard A. McCabe provides an insightful Introduction and detailed notes. "Spenser is most commonly celebrated as the author of The Faerie Queene, yet had he written nothing other than the works collected in the present volume he would still rank amongst the foremost of English poets."--Richard A. McCabe, from the Introduction

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...as his own" (Dowden). For the references to the poet's age.in the Sonnets, see p. 41 above. 3. Furrows. Cf. Sonn. 2 above, and Rich. III. i. 3. 229. 4. Expiate. Bring to an end. Cf. Rich. III. iii. 3. 23: "Make haste; the hour of death is expiate." Here, as there, Steevens conjectures "expirate," which White and Hudson adopt. Surely there is no need of coining a word to replace one which S. twice uses and which can be plausibly explained. Malone quotes Chapman's Byron's Conspiracie, in which an old courtier speaks of himself as " A poor and expiate humour of the court." XXIII 1. Vnperfect. Used by S. only here; but unperfectness occurs in Oth. ii. 3. 298. Imperfect we find in Sonn. 43. 11 and elsewhere, and imperfection six times in the plays. On the present passage, cf. Cor. v. 3. 40: --"Like a dull actor now, I have forgot my part, and I am out, Even to a full disgrace." 2. Besides. For the prepositional use, cf. T. N, iv. 2. 92: "Alas, sir, how fell you besides your five wits?" 3. Replete with too much rage. The rage overcoming self-control. 5. For fear of trust. Fearing to trust myself. Schmidt makes it = " doubting of being trusted;" but the context clearly confirms the explanation I have given. Dowden calls attention to the construction of the first eight lines, 5, 6 referring to 1, 2, and 7, 8, to 3. 4 6. Ceremony. Hudson says that the word "is here used as a trisyllable, as if spelt cer'mony;" but how he would scan the verse I cannot imagine. The word is clearly a quadrisyllable, as almost always in S. 9. Books. Sewell reads " looks;" but the old reading is supported by 13 below. The books, as Dowden remarks, are probably the manuscript books in which the poet writes his sonnets. 12. That tongue. Probably = any tongue, however eloquent, ...

Als Charlotte im Studentenwohnheim von Kumasi eingezogen ist, weit entfernt von ihrem Elternhaus in Accra, genießt sie ihre neue Freiheit. Ihre Zimmergenossin führt sie in den Alltag des Wohnheims ein, wo die Studentinnen gemeinsam lernen, kochen, feiern und Spaß haben. Charlotte, die schön ist und intelligent, zieht die Aufmerksamkeit der Männer auf sich, darunter ihr charismatischer Politikprofessor, der politisch engagierte Kommilitone Banahene und der Ölhändler Asare, der sie mit teuren Geschenken umwirbt. Doch dann bricht in Charlottes erstem Studienjahr plötzlich ein alter politischer Konflikt auf und verändert das Leben aller: Beim Putsch gegen die Regierung werden drei Richter ermordet, und die Studenten Ghanas werden für den Protest mobilisiert. Charlotte erweist sich als fähige und leidenschaftliche Kämpferin und übernimmt - zusammen mit Banahene, in den sie sich verliebt - eine führende Rolle in der Bewegung. Als Charlotte ihre Vorsicht fahren lässt, gerät sie ins Visier der neuen Machthaber und in Lebensgefahr.

Franceso Petrarch (1304-1374), creator of the sonnet form, remained for more than three hundred years the most influential poet in Europe, his works more widely read than even those of Dante. This collection contains English language versions of his poems from across six centuries, in a wide variety of translations and reinterpretations. Spanning the Trionfi series and the Canzoniere - Petrarch's empassioned sonnet-sequence concerning his beloved Laura - it also includes great English poems influenced by Petrarch. From Chaucer's early adaptation of a Petrarchan sonnet in Troilus and Criseyde to the sixteenth century translations by the Earl of Surrey, Byron's mocking consideration of the Canzoniere in Don Juan and Ezra Pound's parody Silet, all provide a unique insight into the significance of the founder of the European lyric tradition.
