The primary aim of this anthology is neither to sample the most influential critics, nor to present the varieties of "critical approaches" to Spenser, nor to trace the shifts of sensibility and response occurring over the centuries during which his poetry has been read, discussed, interpreted, and evaluated. The aim is rather to make available essays which, in the editor's opinion, illuminate in a substantive and perceptive manner as much of Spenser's "oeuvre" as a volume of this size and scope permits. Thus all the essays included here are interpretive studies centering on individual passages, poems, and sections of that "oeuvre." [From the Introduction]
