Edmund Spenser – Five Poems

January 13, 2017



Today (Jan. 13) marks the anniversary of the death of English poet Edmund Spenser (died 1599)…

Spenser’s work, and particularly his epic poem The Fairie Queene, was deeply influential on C.S. Lewis.

Here are five of our favorite poems by him…

New Yeare Looking Forth
Out of the Janus Gate
Edmund Spenser

New yeare forth looking out of Janus gate,
Doth seeme to promise hope of new delight:
And bidding th’old Adieu, his pass.
