In Spenser's Forms of History, Bart Van Es presents an engaging study of the ways in which Edmund Spenser utilized a number of "forms of history"--chronicle, antiquarian discourse, secular typology, political prophecy, and others--in both his poetry and his prose, and assesses their collective impact on Elizabethan poetry.

About the Author:

Bart Van Es is a Junior Research Fellow, Christ Church, Oxford.

Review:


"Essential for all Spenserians, Bart van Es's book has much to recommend it to students of early modern Britain."--Times Literary Supplement


"In his graceful and important book, Bart Van Es sets out to read Spenser historically.... Van Es draws impressively on historically-oriented Renaissance studies of the last twenty years or so while bringing to bear sensitive reading of Spenser's own work as the poet grapples with the various modes of understanding history available in Elizabethan England.... Spenser's Forms of History provides an extremely useful overview of modes of Elizabethan historical thinking and provocative guide to thinking about Spenser in relation to multiform Elizabethan historicism."--Renaissance Quarterly


"Offers some rich and original readings of Spenser's engagements with history, including a fascinating account of the bizarre episode of the chamber of Eumnestes in book 2 of the Faerie Queene."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
