The Man who Wrote The Faerie Queene

Edmund Spenser (d. January 13, 1599)

William Blake thought that Edmund Spenser was the precursor of John Milton. I wonder…

Since we don’t know exactly when Spenser was born, we can only rely upon his death details.

The connections between Spenser and Milton are tenuous, but adding Blake to the mix shows the true line-up between Milton’s and Blake’s birth charts and Spenser’s death chart. Who’d have thought it?

    The Faerie Queene was about Elizabeth I, prompting this quatrain when the 100 pounds wasn’t paid to him, as she had promised:

    I was promis’d on a time,
    To have a reason for my rhyme:
    From that time unto this season,
    I receiv’d nor rhyme nor reason.
