This is an excellent copy of The Faerie Queene, Hamilton does a very good translation at the bottom of each page of any language not known or commonly used today, plus some very helpful historical information. This is the copy I used in my undergraduate dissertation at university.

Hamilton's edition of the Faerie Queene is indispensable to any serious scholar of Spenser. His notes are crucial for one's understanding of the poem, including allegory which provide deep insight into the religion, politics, art and life of the Renaissance. When Spenser wrote the Faerie Queene in 1596 in dedication to Queen Elizabeth I, she delighted in it so much that Spenser was granted an annual pension for the rest of his life. The poem is hugely enjoyable, and not as intimidating as its thickness may suggest, especially with the added benefit of the revised annotations and clear character list in this edition. A series of romances within an epic frame, it is a must read even if you are not a student without a choice!

This is great, as are most of the Longman Annotated series. A.C. Hamilton is the finest editor of Spenser we have. Simply the best.
