Log-in for full text

The concluding chapter looks at narrative structure selectively and in the light of various different contexts. In the first place, it looks at the conflicting reception histories of the poem, and the problematics of organising a long and symbolic work as articulated by theorists from Tasso onwards. It then considers the structure of the individual books of The Faerie Queene through a diagrammatic comparison of Books I and VI, before finally turning to a discussion of the narrator as a potential unifying figure within the poem.
