The Faerie Queen by Edmund Spencer: Summary and Critical Analysis Edmund Spencer's prime motive in writing The Fairie Queene was to demonstrate virtues of a gentleman or a noble person.

The virtues were to be illustrated by a series of adventures of the twelve knights who represented one virtue each among the twelve gentlemanly virtues of King. Faerie Queene, " English Literary Renaissance, 4(),notes that Spenser's overall treatment of British history in Books II and III follows "the Virgilian precedent for tracing a summary of national history and legend in the epic not chronologically but with the order upset" (p.

The Faerie Queene Books Series 16 primary works • 18 total works Originally intended to be a total length of twenty-four books, The Faerie Queene is : Edmund Spenser.

The Faerie Queene, one of the great long poems in the English language, written in the 16th century by Edmund originally conceived, the poem was to have been a religious-moral-political allegory in 12 books, each consisting of the adventures of a knight representing a particular moral virtue; Book I, for example, recounts the legend of the Red Cross Knight, or Holiness.
