Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene

As I continue working my way through the Norton Anthologies of English Literature, my January and February reading was a long section from The Faerie Queene: all of Book I, along with sections of Book II, III, and the Mutabilitie Cantos.

Here are some images inspired by or that draw on the same sources as Spenser's work:

1860 - Una and the Lion - William Bell Scott

1880 - Una and the Lion - Briton Riviere

1825 c. - The Faerie Queene - William Blake

1805 c. - The River of Life - William Blake

1900 - Britomart - Walter Crane
