Sabrina Baez Baez 1 ENG 346 9/8/2011 Weekly Page #1 Sir Walter Raleigh’s “A Vision Upon This Conceipt of the Faery Queene” Sir Walter Raleigh’s sonnet about the fairy queen is actually more of a revision of Edmund Spencer’s poem about Elizabethan mythology. It was first introduced to Sir Walter Raleigh in a letter to him from Edmund Spencer in which he describes the virtues of Arthurian knights such as; Holiness, Temperance, Chastity, Friendship, Justice, and Courtesy. There are a lot of political references involved in the poem with allegories to Queen Elizabeth as the Fairy Queen Gloriana and references to King Arthur. In Edmund Spencer’s poem there is a long story pertaining each of the virtues, Sir Walter Raleigh manages to reenact all of those virtues in a simple fourteen line sonnet. Instead of focusing on all the different little parts, of Spencer’s poem Raleigh focuses mainly on Arthur’s story about how he loves the Faery Queene.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
