CHOICE Review

Erickson (Georgia State Univ.) reveals the fictional universe of The Faerie Queene as a multiform one involving the heroic epic; epic and romance quest structures; Tudor history; and moral, social, and erotic life. His interpretation is consistent with the work of Kenneth Gross, Patricia Parker, Gordon Teskey, and others. The book's introduction maps multiplicity, identifying Faeryland within the fictional universe. The four analytical chapters consider epic and history, epic and romance, Britain, and the epic quests. The epilogue explores the final actions of the characters stranded in a Faeryland that collapses into an infected Elizabethan world. Spenser emerges as a conscious epic poet speaking truth for his age by coordinating epic and romance quest structures. Extensive notes follow each chapter. The copious bibliography spans centuries of criticism. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate collections and above. L. M. Tenbusch emerita, Immaculata College
