Spenser Online

The complete online resource for scholarship pertaining to the life and works of Edmund Spenser.

Spenser Online, a collaboration between Cambridge University, Washington University, St. Louis, and the CDH, brings together resources to support the reading, discussion, and enjoyment of Edmund Spenser’s works. 

For those new to Spenser we offer a brief biography and chronology of events, a set of links to online versions of Spenser’s texts, and links to related internet resources for the study of Spenser and his contemporaries. Students and other academic users will be interested in the bibliography, the census of editions, the Finding Aid, the Spenser Review, the Sidney-Spenser Discussion List, and Centering Spenser:  A Digital Resource for Kilcolman Castle.

Spenser Online also hosts pages for the International Spenser Society, which publishes The Spenser Review and sponsors panels at a number of academic conferences; and for Spenser Studies: A Renaissance Poetry Annual, which publishes scholarly work on Spenser’s poetry and on English Renaissance verse generally.
