Summary This 1967 book was compiled by Alastair Fowler from notes left by C. S. Lewis at his death. It is Lewis's longest piece of literary criticism, as distinct from literary history. It approaches The Faerie Queene as a majestic pageant of the universe and nature, celebrating God as 'the glad creator', and argues that conventional views of epic and allegory must be modified if the poem is to be fully enjoyed and understood.
Contents The false Cupid -- Antitypes to the false Cupid -- Belphoebe, Amoret, and the garden of Adonis -- The image of evil -- Mutability -- The image of good -- Britomart's dream -- Faceless knights -- The misery of Florimell -- The story of Arthur.
