A Critical Companion to Spenser Studies provides an authoritative guide to debate on Elizabethan England's poet laureate. The book covers key topics (such as politics and gender) and provides reception histories for all of the primary texts. Across twelve chapters, some of today's most prominent Spenser scholars offer lively accounts of debates on the poet, from the Renaissance to the present day. The Companion is an essential reference work for scholars but also provides a stimulating introduction for the non-specialist, Plot summaries, generous quotation and a jargon-free style help make this book as accessible as possible. The impact of critical movements such as Formalism, Psychoanalysis and New Historicism are clearly set out. A concluding guide to 'Texts and Resources' also assists the reader in the pursuit of further research, including the use of on-line sources. Those looking to develop a fresh, independent perspective on Spenser will find the Companion an invaluable aid
