  2. 2. Not Your Typical Fairytale “The Faerie Queene,” is much more than just a fairytale. Many of the characters contain historical paradoxes from the Elizabethan time period in England. The setting itself is an allegory to England.

  4. 4. Good Versus Evil Edmund Spenser was very anti-catholicism. In the story, the good characters represent true religion, which he thought was Protestantism/Anglicanism. The villains represent the Roman Catholic Church.
  5. 5. The Good Guys  Gloriana, the Faerie Queen, is a paradox for Queen Elizabeth.  The Redcrosse Knight represents an individual Christian on their search for Holiness.  Una means truth.  Must have true faith to be Holy.
  6. 6.  Archimago means arch-The Bad Guys image. The Protestants accused Catholics of idolatry because of their extensive uses of images.  Duessa represents the Catholic Church because she is deceiving and she is described as wearing elaborate gold and purple clothing, showing the greedy wealth and arrogant pomp of Rome.  Error- “Her vomit full off bookes and papers was...”(177).
