Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Edmund Spenser: Edited With Critical Notes

OF Spenser's life something may be learned from Official documents and from the writings Of his contemporaries, but the most valuable information is to be found in his poetry. The art of an idealist is in a peculiar sense the expression Of his mind and character, and Of his relation with the world about him and along with this intimate though Often intangible autobiography Spenser has incidentally recorded some details capable Of more definite interpretation. From a sonnet written in 1593, the year Of his courtship, a year which, he tells us, seems longer.
