This review is from: The Faerie Queene [Illustrated] (Penguin Classics) (Kindle Edition)
On my third read over the last forty years, one of those books you feel you ought to read, and strangely compelling inspite of the number of old words which we do not use now.
I would not have read it this third time without Kindle, it makes it easy to pick up and continue. But it does have an irritating error in which it prints about six meaningles characters instead of the end or middle of a word. Gradually worked out that it replaced one letter with these six.
It is another world, and an education in that world. It is like this world in that it isn't perfect but it is much, much better than anything you could have made up yourself.
If you haven't read it yet, think of it as a far country to visit in a gap year. Go there, be bewildered for a while, but get on and you will be changed.
