I never met language I like more. The Red Cross knight in book one is a dear, and later there's Britomart, she-knight. Stuffed with sex and violence. Such fun and earnest intent. Has the wild adventures of Boiardo and Ariosto but Spenser, bless him, is far more serious than they... like Malory after the frivolous chivalry.
