Abstract only
Log-in for full text

As recorded in the annotations in this section, and noted in the introduction, Knevet’s language employs a Spenserian vocabulary, making copious allusion to The Faerie Queene, as well as Spenser’s other writings. It is frequently archaic (oftŸen repeating Spenser’s own Chaucerian diction), and also employs a dense lexicon of chivalric, heraldic, and courtly terms. In those annotations, the editors have refrained from glossing every instance of some of Knevet’s more commonly used terms and phrases; instead they are listed in this glossary section.
