First published in 1590 by Edmund Spenser, this epic poem was written in Spenserian Stanza. It is one of the longest poems of its kind in the english language, despite being incomplete, since Spenser died before completing the third and final part. What’s great about it is that it also makes for great name-spotting:
Traimond (brother of Primond and Diamond)
Psst … Lou, I think it was published before 1950, typo for 1590???
