Edmund Spenser : A Literary Life Hardback
Part of the Literary Lives series
Gary Waller surveys Spenser's career in terms of the material conditions of its production - the often overlooked material factors of race, gender, class, agency - and the resonant 'places' which influenced his career - court, church, nation, colony.
The book includes an original account of the gender politics of Spenser's work and his difficult position between Ireland and England, the 'homes' about which he held ambivalent feelings.
Waller also discusses the 'place' the biographer occupies in writing a literary life.
