Excerpt from The Gateway to Spenser: Tales Retold by Emily Underdown From the Faerie Queene of Edmund Spenser

Introduction to Sir Philip Sidney, who was not only a brave soldier, but a lover of poetry, and who found a congenial companion in the young poet fresh from Cambridge. The two friends left London for a season and spent a delightful time in Sidney's beautiful Kentish home at Penshurst, writing, reading, and discussing the books which were so dear to both their hearts. Not long after this time Spenser began to write T/ze Faerie Queen, which is his longest and best poem. While he was busily engaged in this great work, he obtained an introduction to Lord Leicester, who, as our history books tell us, was a great favourite of Queen Elizabeth. The poet resided for some time with this nobleman, who was very kind to him, and who enter rained at his house in London all the cleverest and most famous men of the time.
