|Title:||'So liuely and so like, that liuing sence it fayld': enargeia and ekphrasis in The Faerie Queene||Authors:||Grogan, Jane||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7738||Date:||2009||Abstract:||In the Letter to Ralegh accompanying the 1590 Books of The Faerie Queene, Edmund Spenser explains that precisely because his poem is ‘a continued allegory, or darke conceit, I haue thought good aswell for auoyding of gealous opinions and misconstructions, as also for your better light in reading thereof... to discouer vnto you the general intention and meaning, which in the whole course thereof I haue fashioned’. In using these terms, Spenser signals his understanding of allegory as a challenging, esoteric discipline, one for which his readers will need this clarification.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2009 Taylor and Francis||Subject LCSH:||Spenser, Edmund, 1552?-1599
