This is the parallel "verse to prose" version, of the "prose only" kindle B075FX8T6N or paperback 0648164802 options. The Faerie Queene is one of the enduring works of literature that inspired literary greats, such as CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. It is a magical and multi-layered epic of heroism, chivalry, monsters, witches, wizards, damsels, tests and temptations, woven into the backdrop of Elizabethan politics, morals, and religion. It is thoroughly Medieval, yet astonishingly modern and relatable. This vibrant new prose version (with parallel verse) faithfully adheres to the story of St George and the Dragon, and captures Spenser's rich language, tone and vigor. It strikes a skillful balance between faithfulness and fluency, without omitting or dumbing down any details. It is Spenser's The Faerie Queene, Book One, in its entirety. "To our own troubled and inquiring age this wisdom will perhaps show its most welcome aspect in the complete integration, the harmony, of Spenser's mind. His work is one, like a growing thing, a tree; like the world-ash-tree itself, with branches reaching to heaven and roots to hell ... And between these two extremes comes all the multiplicity of human life, transmuted but not falsified by the conventions of chivalrous romance. .... To read him is to grow in mental health." CS Lewis: Allegory of Love.
