Elizabethans learned to embrace religious studies in petty school, where they "read from selections from the Book of Common Prayer and memorized Catechisms from the Scriptures".
Here, allegory is organized in the traditional arrangement of Renaissance theological treatises and confessionals. While reading Book I, audiences first encounter original sin, justification and the nature of sin before analysing the church and the sacraments. During The Faerie Queene's inception, Spenser worked as a civil servant, in "relative seclusion from the political and literary events of his day".
Within his poem, Spenser explores human consciousness and conflict, relating to a variety of genres including sixteenth century Arthurian literature. The Faerie Queene draws heavily on Ariosto and Tasso. The first three books of The Faerie Queene operate as a unit, representing the entire cycle from the fall of Troy to the reign of Elizabeth.
Despite the historical elements of his text, Spenser is careful to label himself a historical poet as opposed to a historiographer.

Spenser notes this differentiation in his letter to Raleigh, noting "a Historiographer discourseth of affairs orderly as they were done…but a Poet thrusteth into the midst…and maketh a pleasing Analysis of all". Spenser's characters embody Elizabethan values, highlighting political and aesthetic associations of Tudor Arthurian tradition in order to bring his work to life. While Spenser respected British history and "contemporary culture confirmed his attitude",  his literary freedom demonstrates that he was "working in the realm of mythopoeic imagination rather than that of historical fact".
The Faerie Queene owes, in part, its central figure, Arthur, to a medieval writer, Geoffrey of Monmouth.
In his Prophetiae Merlini "Prophecies of Merlin" , Geoffrey's Merlin proclaims that the Saxons will rule over the Britons until the "Boar of Cornwall" Arthur again restores them to their rightful place as rulers. Through their ancestor, Owen Tudor , the Tudors had Welsh blood, through which they claimed to be descendants of Arthur and rightful rulers of Britain.

Since its inception four centuries ago, Spenser's diction has been scrutinized by scholars. Despite the enthusiasm the poet and his work received, Spenser's experimental diction was "largely condemned" before it received the acclaim it has today. Sugden argues in The grammar of Spenser's Faerie Queene that the archaisms reside "chiefly in vocabulary, to a high degree in spelling, to some extent in the inflexions, and only slightly in the syntax". Samuel Johnson also commented critically on Spenser's diction, with which he became intimately acquainted during his work on A Dictionary of the English Language , and "found it a useful source for obsolete and archaic words"; Johnson, however, mainly considered Spenser's early pastoral poems, a genre of which he was not particularly fond.
The diction and atmosphere of The Faerie Queene relied on much more than just Middle English ; for instance, classical allusions and classical proper names abound—especially in the later books—and he coined some names based on Greek , such as "Poris" and "Phao lilly white.

Spenser's language in The Faerie Queene , as in The Shepheardes Calender , is deliberately archaic, though the extent of this has been exaggerated by critics who follow Ben Jonson 's dictum, that "in affecting the ancients Spenser writ no language. Examples of medieval archaisms in morphology and diction include:. Numerous adaptations in the form of children's literature have been made — the work was a popular choice in the 19th and early 20th century with over 20 different versions written, with the earliest being E. Bradburn's Legends from Spencer's Fairy Queen, for Children , written in the form of a dialogue between mother and children — the 19th-century versions oft concentrated on the moral aspect of the tale.
The Edwardian era was particularly rich in adaptation for children, and the works richly illustrated, with contributing artists including A.
Walker , Gertrude Demain Hammond , T. Robinson , Frank C. According to Richard Simon Keller, George Lucas 's Star Wars film also contains elements of a loose adaptation, as well as being influenced by other works, with parallels including the story of the Red Cross Knight championing Una against the evil Archimago in the original compared with Lucas's Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader. Keller sees extensive parallels between the film and book one of Spenser's work, stating "[A]lmost everything of importance that we see in the Star Wars movie has its origin in The Faerie Queene , from small details of weaponry and dress to large issues of chivalry and spirituality".

Gloriana and the Green Ruby by Heather R. Darsie
What fools men are! Of course I pretended to be awfully cut up, rubbed my eyes, got up a few tears and sniffs, got rid of him with a kiss or two, packed him off to his club, and at twelve o'clock Kil and I are off to Maidenhead together. This announcement creates the greatest amusement between the two ladies, judging by the peals of laughter that follow it.
Why, I was with H. You can't think what a jolly day we had, Vivi. Some of the recitations were quite delightful, and there was a boy called Hector D'Estrange, who was simply too lovely for words. We all fell in love with him, I can tell you. I never saw such eyes in my life. Won't he break some of our hearts some day! It appears he has taken the school by storm. Does everything tiptop. Splendid batsman, bowler, oarsman, wonderful at racquets, undefeatable at books — in fact, my dear, beautiful as an Adonis, and clever past expression.
What fun, Dodo, it would have been to see my Adonis punching the overgrown bully! I did laugh when Estcourt told me.
