The Faerie Queene Now

23/06/10-23/06/10

A poem of militant Protestantism contemporary with the original establishment of the national church, Spenser's poem, "The Faerie Queene", today seems remote from mainstream secular society. ‘The Faerie Queene Now’ responds by remaking religious poetry for today's world. It speaks to where we have come from and where we are going by exploring Spenser's foundational poem in various present-day religious, educational and cultural contexts. But it also aims to recreate and refunction Spenser's epic as a positive contribution to contemporary life.
