The Faerie Queene (Penguin Classics)

The Faerie Queene - C. Patrick O'Donnell, Thomas P. Roche, Edmund Spenser Am reading books 1 and 2 for summer book club. To get into the swing of reading this classic epic, I am beginning book 1 by reading Roy Maynard's book "Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves". So far, it is exciting! Adventure! True Love! Deceit! Betrayal! Battles! Victory! Defeats! Monsters! Heroes! Valiant Deeds! Good stuff.Have finished books 1 and 2 per our book club assignment, and while it was a bit of a difficult slog because of the language, it is REALLY excellent!
