Abstract: A 5 page essay that analyzes Book VI of Edmund Spenser's sixteenth century masterpiece of poetry, The Faerie Queen. This book details how Sir Calidore, the most "courteous" of knights, personifies Courtesy in Book VI of the poem. It is Calidore's mission to battle Envy and Distraction, which are personified in the Blatant Beast, and, in so doing, Calidore's adventures signify Spenser's thoughts concerning the positive power of perfect Courtesy. No additional sources cited.
