This book focuses on how a series of major characters in Edmund Spenser's "The Faerie Queene" (Prince Arthur, Britomart, Duessa, Artegall, and those characters that figure forth the poet's sovereign, Elizabeth 1) enhance a reader's appreciation of the epic's complex topical allegory and its moral implications. These characters both articulate and underscore central aspects of Spenser's politically encomiastic and critical agendas.

"... this topic is appropriate, in this moment in contemporary Spenser criticism, to move beyond mere assertions of the topical relevance of sections in Spenser's poem, and to explore the broader contexts of these moments, both in the organization of characters and their role in the allegory..." - Professor David Galbraith, University of Toronto"
