really liked it

The Shepheardes Calendar is brilliant, far superior to Faerie Queene. The Amoretti and Epithalamion are wonderful accounts of love and marriage, with a hint of biography as Spenser charts progress on his work. Colin Clout's Home Againe is not a great work, but it is important to his ouevre. Overall, a good collection to have on one's shelf if you're interested in Renaissance literature.
