Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves: Book I of Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene

Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves(Spensers Faerie Queen, #1) - Edmund Spenser For summer book club we are reading books 1 and 2 from "The Faerie Queene" by Edmund Spenser. Roy Maynard has taken the first book of FQ and made it more accessible through more modern spelling and hilarious commentary. Already I am enjoying the book and beginning to understand why FQ is so wonderful and important. Many many kudos to Mr. Maynard for providing the exceptional foundation for reading FQ. I would have had a much more difficult time if not for this book. I wish he would continue writing for the rest of FQ's books!
