Riassunto: The Faerie Queene, Books Three and Four (Bk. 3 & 4), written by legendary author Edmund Spenser is widely considered to be one of the greatest classic and historical texts of all time. This great classic will surely attract a whole new generation of readers. For many, The Faerie Queene, Books Three and Four (Bk. 3 & 4) is required reading for various courses and curriculums. And for others who simply enjoy reading timeless pieces of classic literature, this gem by Edmund Spenser is highly recommended. Published by Classic Books International and beautifully produced, The Faerie Queene, Books Three and Four (Bk. 3 & 4) would make an ideal gift and it should be a part of everyone's personal library.

Dal retro di copertina: These paired Arthurian legends suggest that erotic desire and the desire for companionship undergird national politics. The maiden Britomart, Queen Elizabeth's fictional ancestor, dons armor to search for a man whom she has seen in a crystal ball. While on this quest, she seeks to understand how one can be chaste while pursuing a sexual goal, in love with a man while passionately attached to a woman, a warrior princess yet a wife. As Spenser's most sensitively developed character, Britomart is capable of heroic deeds but also of teenage self-pity. Her experience is anatomized in the stories of other characters, where versions of love and friendship include physical gratification, torture, mutual aid, competition, spiritual ecstasy, self-sacrifice, genial teasing, jealousy, abduction, wise government, sedition, and the valiant defense of a pig shed.
