Edmund Spenser's tomb at Westminster Abbey has the inscription, the Prince of Poets. If you've read Books I and II of his unfinished English epic, The Faerie Queene, you know why by now. Book III is one of the most unique books, written from the perspective of the heroic Britomart, a warrior princess in search of her true love. Along the way she encounters wizards, monsters, braggarts, sea gods, cheats, and at the end, a deathly palace.
