Stories From The Faerie Queene
The Faerie Queene Retold
A classic retelling of Edmund Spenser’s English epic poem, The Faerie Queene. The poem is one of the longest in the English language. It follows several knights through their lives and adventures with allegorical meaning throughout. This retelling allows for easier reading avoiding the archaic spelling and poetic form of the original story. The book is a great introduction to The Faerie Queene for young readers and will certainly spur their interest to read the original.
First published in 1905, this edition is derived from the original book with 88 black & white illustrations by A.G. Walker. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
