The Secret Life of Books (Series 2)Streaming Video - 2015
Considered one of the most influential poems in the English language, Edmund Spenser's "The Faerie Queene" is a fusion of Arthurian romance and Italian Renaissance epic styles. Written in the 16th century, the poem is heavily laced with allegory and metaphor. Spenser wrote the bulk of the poem while serving as a private secretary in Ireland, and dedicated it to Queen Elizabeth I. Divided into six books, the fantastical "Faerie Queene" explores a world of queens, knights, dragons, nymphs, and enchantments. Art historian Dr. Janina Ramirez examines the intricacies of Spenser's work and interviews various experts for a comprehensive study of the poem.
