‘The Faerie Queene’ by Edmund Spenser 1590
Week five of the Coursera on-line course Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative is already upon us. For this week we are readying first Canto of Book III of Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene.
The discussion for the week was very varied. We talked about Spenser and his poems, their allegory, formation and what it was to be a poet to royalty in his day. We related some of the work he did with other works we have studied on the course so far and, of course, to Lord of The Rings book and Film. We looked at art and representations of this and other works. Finally Jay showed us how his students had re-mediated some of this work into a game.
