Question: 1 / 50

Who wrote the epic poem, The Faerie Queene?

Geoffrey Chaucer

Edmund Spenser

The epic poem, The Faerie Queene, was written by Edmund Spenser. Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Milton are other renowned writers of old English literature but they did not write The Faerie Queene. Chaucer is best known for his Canterbury Tales, Shakespeare for his plays such as Romeo and Juliet, and Milton for his epic poem Paradise Lost. Therefore, while all of these writers are famous in their own right, they are not associated with The Faerie Queene.

William Shakespeare

John Milton
