    Often spoken of in the same breath as Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton, Edmund Spenser was in many ways their teacher. In this work most of all, Spenser laid the groundwork for a great English national literature. First published in 1590, ‘The Faerie Queene’ is an epic poem celebrating and critiquing the Tudor Dynasty and Queen Elizabeth I, which would lay foundations on which Shakespeare, among many others, built their greatness. Fun fact: A verse from ‘The Faerie Queene’ was featured at the end of Philip Pullman’s 2017 novel ‘The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage’.
