Edwards 1Diana EdwardsProfessor B. MeadowsRenaissance Literature ENGL 310June 9, 2019Literary Analysis Short Paper: The Faerie QueeneIn the stage play, “The Faerie Queene” author Edmund Spenser brings together a performance that delves into religion, and anti-religion. The play’s protagonist in book one “The Faerie Queene” goes on a search for holiness and Christianity. He is loyal to his God, his religion, and his queen. He’s chosen to defeat evil, on his journey to Christianity and true Holiness. Spencer is intrigued by his own personal relationship with religion, love and himself (becoming a better person, during right verses wrong). He uses illusions in this fairy tale to express himself. Filled with imagery, allowing your imagination to flow, Edmund Spenser is giving a mental and emotional picture of a tale full of fantasy, love, and religion. Book 1 of the stage play has a personal and religious tone, giving it an ingredient of realism. Using imagery, Spenser fabricates images of dragons which represents evil, and faeries which represents queens. A description of this is given in cantos one, there is a scene with Red Cross Knight (play’s protagonist)
