Stories From The Faerie Queene

Stories From The Faerie Queene

by Mary MacLeod (Reteller), Edmund Spenser
Publisher: Living Book Press
Print-on-demand paperback, 296 pages
Price: $12.99

One of the masterpieces of English poetry, The Faerie Queene has influenced works from Pilgrim’s Progress to The Lord of the Rings. The original text, written in the 1500’s, can be hard for modern readers to follow due to its different language and spelling.

This retelling by Mary Macleod allows modern readers to get straight into Spenser’s intricate allegory and includes all the original text as well as all 85 black and white images.
