“The Faerie Queene, one of the enduring works of poetry, is a magical and fabulous epic – a masterpiece of English literature which has enchanted readers for centuries with its romantic and moral tales of love and adventure.  Here for the first time this great English classic is presented in a sparkling, eminently readable, modern prose adaptation.  In this sumptuous tale, chivalry, folklore, knighthood, and legend flourish at their most appealing and fascinating.  Among the fantastic cast of characters are Queen Gloriana’s wandering knights, the gallant Prince Arthur, damsels, monsters, sirens, and other incredible characters.
Lavishly illustrated with wonderful drawings and paintings from the Elizabethan period.  The Faerie Queene comes delightfully alive in this illuminating version.”
