Four talks to mark the fourth centenary of Spenser's birth
1-' Who knows not Colin Clout ? ' by W. L. Renwick Professor of English
In the University of Edinburgh
Some of the characters in Spenser's poems -notably Colin Oout in the sixth book of The Faerie Queene—embody a good deal ot autobiographical detail. These characters are placed side by side with the figures belonging entirely to the world of chivalry and romance. Professor Renwick, who has for many years made a special study of Spenser, examines this rich and continually shifting pattern of fact and imagination, and argues that the relationship between Spenser's life and his poetry is unusually complex and not always properly appreciated.
