Fairy in The Faerie Queene is the first extended examination of the poem to locate Spenser's work within the context of early modern conceptions and representations of fairy and to discuss the representation of Elizabeth as the fairy queen in relation to the vast range of studies on Elizabethan myth-making.
This book will appeal to scholars with an interest in Spenser, fairy lore, and the representation of Queen Elizabeth I in Renaissance literature.
