Edmund Spencer’s, The Faerie Queene, the epic 16th Century poem, translated into modern English prose.
Suitable for all ages.
Originally translated by Sophia H Maclehose in 1892. This edition edited and revised by SJ Hills in 2018.
In writing these Tales from "The Faerie Queene," no attempt has been made to interpret their allegorical or explain their historic bearing. Intended for children, the stories are related simply as stories, and therefore only those episodes in the poem most interesting and most complete in themselves have been chosen. In no case do the Tales pretend to relate the whole that Spenser tells of their heroes and heroines. - Sophia H Maclehose 1892
