STORIES FROM THE FAERIE QUEENE - 8 Tales retold by Jeanie Lang
More than four hundred years ago there lived in England a poet named Edmund Spenser (1552 – 1599). He was brave and true and gentle, and he loved all that was beautiful and good.
Edmund Spenser wrote many poems, and the most beautiful of all is the one called ‘The Faerie Queen’ from which the 8 illustrated stories in this volume are taken.
While there are many, many stories in ‘The Faerie Queen,’ Jeanie Lang, niece to the great Andrew Lang, has retold eight poems in story form. Each story has an illustration drawn by Miss Rose Le Quesne.
The 8 stories in this volume are:
- Una and the Lion
- St. George and the Dragon
- Britomart and the Magic Mirror
- The Quest of Sir Guyon
- Cambell and Triamond
- Marinell, the Sea-Nymph’s Son
- Florimell and the Witch
