Ralph Knevet's Supplement of the Faery Queene (1635) is a narrative and allegorical work, which weaves together a complex collection of tales and episodes, featuring knights, ladies, sorcerers, monsters, vertiginous fortresses and deadly battles – a chivalric romp in Spenser's cod medieval style. The poem shadows recent English history, and the major military and political events of the Thirty Years War. But the Supplement is also an ambitiously intertextual poem, weaving together materials from mythic, literary, historical, scientific, theological, and many other kinds of written sources. Its encyclopaedic ambitions combine with Knevet's historical focus to produce an allegorical epic poem of considerable interest and power.

This new edition of Knevet's Supplement, the first scholarly text of the poem ever published, situates it in its literary, historical, biographical, and intellectual contexts. An extensive introduction and copious critical commentary, positioned at the back of the book, will enable students and scholars alike to access Knevet's complicated and enigmatic meanings, structures, and allusions.

’ arrival was a return to their fatherland, not an invasion: two successive waves of migration reunited people of one blood. Clovis and the Holy Ampulla now figured on the family tree side by side with Pharamond and the Salic law. Who, of the French and English kings, could legitimately claim to descend from Priam? Which of the two kingdoms best deserved honour for its pleasance, valiance and riches? Written

anything the ‘Gaelic Revival’ confirmed Scottophobic fears that Northerners were intent on cultural imperialism as well as economic migration. Given that the eighteenth century was notable for both Shakespeare’s cultural elevation and for outbreaks of Anglo-Scottish hostility, Macbeth ’s theatrical presentation in the period is of particular interest.

And the notion that, thanks in part to Shakespeare, ‘Wales was silently absorbed into Greater England’ defies the reality that ‘An integrated Britain becomes visible first in the migration of the Welsh to the centre of power’, as Williams observed, and that it was Cymrophile sentiments about the ‘Worthiness’ and centrality of Wales which were those ‘echoed by

included moving accounts of the individuals’ family past, usually when that past connected with similarly emotionally loaded experience such as war or migration. The value of the object discussed, though it was seldom asserted as such, consisted in the appeal that its significance might be recognised as it stood in for familiar images of the past. The programme created an image of an immensely appealing
