This is the first comprehensive edition of Spenser’s shorter poems since the Variorum Minor Poems published in the 1940s.  In the interval our understanding of Renaissance culture of Spenser’s work has changed greatly.  The new Shorter Poems has a double purpose: to provide a modern edition responding to the changes in our knowledge of Spenser over the past four decades and to create a text that can be used in graduate and undergraduate courses.
In this edition, substantial introductions to each of the poems discuss their generic and historical backgrounds, responding to the concerns raised by recent scholarship.  The newly edited texts of the poems generally retain original spelling and punctuation.  Extensive notes gloss archaic and obscure words and include up-to-date information on historical, mythological, and iconographic material.  The book includes a chronology of Spenser’s life and a list of critical works for further reading.
William Oram is associate professor of English at Smith College.  Einar Bjorvand is lecturer at the Institute of English Studies, University of Oslo.  Ronald Bond is professor of English at the University of Calgary.  Thomas Cain is professor of English at MacMaster University.  Alexander Dunlop is assistant professor of English at Auburn University.  Richard Schell is associate professor of English at Laurentian University.

From Library Journal:

The expressed purpose of this volume is "to make available to students the texts of Spenser's shorter poems with introductions and notes which respond to developments in Spenser criticism over the past forty years." Thus, it is an update of the Variorum Minor Poems, published in the 1940s, and a successful one. It surpasses the Everyman edition (now out of print) in not modernizing spellings and in glossing difficult or arcane terms. The print is attractive and the book a pleasure to read; the paperback version should find wide use in Renaissance literature courses. The price of the hardcover version, however, will present problems for many libraries. Still, libraries wanting an update of the Variorum , or lacking it while having an active Spenser audience, should consider this strongly.
