Spenser's masterpiece "The Faerie Queen", is among the most influential poems in the English language. it was the first epic in English and established the possibilities of heroic poetry in the English tradition. The author's intention was to rival, or surpass, the epic romances of the Italian poets Ariosto and Tasso through the "darke conceit" of this poem, which unites the medieval romance and Renaissance epic.
