The Faerie Queene (9 of 14)

Publication Date: November 16, 2010

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

So, getting rid of Arthur turned out to be pretty easy: Spenser writes him out of Britomart's story almost immediately, making Arthur's presence in this canto completely pointless. Anyway, a damsel in distress runs by the party, chased by an angry rapist. The two dashing knights chase after the girl, leaving their squire to deal with the villain. Makes sense to me.

Britomart looks at all the knights like they're idiots and wanders off onto her own path. I'm starting to get why people like this chick.

Author: Edmund Spenser • Year: 1590 • Info: Wikipedia
