Shakespeare's 77th sonnet is the half-way point of the book of sonnets. The poet here presents the idea of the young man taking on the role of poet and writing about himself. This sonnet makes use of the rhetorical device termed correlatio, which involves a listing and correlating of significant objects, and which was perhaps overused in English sonnets. Focusing on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream and Merry Wives of Windsor, Spenser's Faerie Queene, and Jonson's Masque of Oberon, she explores the ways in which early modern literature formed a particularly productive site of contest for deep social changes, and how these changes in turn, played a large role in shaping some of the most.   Shakespeare, Spenser, and the crisis in Ireland by Highley, Christopher.

This essay argues for the essential importance of myth and parody to Renaissance writing and connects them with still movement, a punning paradox that both Spenser and Shakespeare engage. Still movement simultaneously opposes motion to stillness and conjoins them.

Edmund Spenser Sonnet 1: “Happy ye leaves when as those lily hands ” This sonnet by Spenser exemplifies the use of a literary consciousness in poetry. The phrases “Happy ye leaves” and “happy lines” and “happy rymes” are all addressing the actual poem, which is very interesting (1, 5, 9).

Hadfield singles out the drama of William Shakespeare and the poetry of Edmund Spenser for special consideration in his book, "both of whom were acutely aware of the British context of English literature" (9); but he also examines the writings of John Bale, Thomas Harriot, Michael Drayton, John Lyly, George Buchanan, Richard Beacon, and others.

In Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 18” and Spenser’s “Sonnet 75”, both poets speak of love in terms of feelings and actions by using different expressive views, allowing the similar topics to contain clear distinctions.

However, the more important purpose of the Faerie Queene is its allegory, the meaning behind its characters and events. The story's setting, a fanciful "faerie land," only emphasizes how its allegory is meant for a land very close to home: Spenser's England.

The title character, the Faerie Queene herself, is meant to represent Queen Elizabeth. Shakespeare vs Edmund Spenser Difference in their sonnets:  Shakespeare’s works have been recorded and maintained in the form of manuscripts. Spenser, who was perhaps the most religious of the poets, Christianizes Neo-Platonism, applied his belief and faith to some of his work, as that of innocent marriage in Amoretti.

No writer’s living reputation can compare to that of Shakespeare, whose notable plays included the tragedies Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello. He was also known for his sonnets. Spenser wrote and revised the first three books of the poem over a decade, during which he was frequently interrupted by pressure of personal, civil, political, military affairs.

Milton sacrificed his poetic career for many years to a greater extent and to political demands of greater moment, but, instead of attempting under pressure to write. Monmouth invented much of this "history", and so Spenser's interpretation may at certain points be a few levels removed from the truth.
