Library stamps/marks/labels/slip, toned, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; "This important new commentary comes in response to the renewed interest in Spenser and his works. Its aim is to give the kind of in-depth interpretations for which there is usually no room in texts, and the stanza-by-stanza approach makes it easy to use with any edition of the poem. In elucidating Spenser's allegory the author has taken full account of modern scholarship in such fields as numerology and iconology, and analysis of emblematic detail leads to many new interpretative insights." ; Ex-Library; x, 198 pages.
