When a major new character appears whose name has been altered in this way, the headnotes give both the revised name and the name that Spenser assigned to him, her or it; minor characters are not annotated in this way. Chastity is the theme of Book Three, and its principal character is Dame Britomart. We find her in the course of her quest in the opening canto, disguised as a male knight in full armour, having to overcome the hostilities of a series of men; she must then withstand the amatory advances of a lady.
Britomart is on a quest to find a knight called Artegall, whom she has never met but whom she saw in her father's magic mirror as a young girl; Britomart and her nurse visit the maker of the magic mirror, Merlin, from whom they learn the special destiny that the future holds for her and Artegall.
Britomart defeats a number of different opponents in the course of her quest, giving rise to the emergence of various other chaste female characters, including Florimell, Belphoebe and her twin-sister Amoret, as well as the goddesses Venus and Diana. Britomart and the other chaste women encounter a variety of unchaste female characters as well, both savoury and unsavoury. In a story-within-the story, Florimell is on a quest to find her own lover, Marinell. The ending of Book Three in the edition is slightly different from that given in the edition.

Both endings are given in this website and in the modern language edition. Strong bonds of friendship also develop between female characters such as Britomart and Amoret. Britomart devotes herself to rescuing Amoret after Amoret is abducted once again. Despite the many romantic adventures and successful outcomes described in Book Four, Spenser suggests that friendship is a virtue of a higher order than romantic love. However, friendship between the genders—other than between brothers and sisters—is problematic; only Prince Arthur appears able to restrain his romantic impulses.
Spenser was an admitted admirer of the poetry of Geoffrey Chaucer and names him in Canto 2. The Faerie Queene as published in is the main source text for this web page. Redcrosse takes advantage of this and attacks her, forcing her not to leave, and strikes her shoulder.

She's momentarily dazed by the blow, but then becomes even angrier, rushes on top of Redcrosse and wraps him up with her tail. The lady, seeing that things are not going well, urges Redcrosse to strangle the monster before the monster strangles him. Redcrosse manages to free one of his arms and grabs the monster by the throat, which loosens her hold on him, but also causes her to vomit out disgusting poison, that not only smells horrible but is also filled with books, papers, frogs, and toads.
This vomit is just like when the Nile River in Egypt inundates, and out of its slush a bunch of weird creatures are born.
The Faerie Queene
Brain bite! The Nile is the major river in Egypt and every year it inundates, or overflows, onto its banks providing much-needed irrigation for the soil. While there is certainly diverse wildlife near the Nile, there aren't any strange monsters. The smell of the poisonous vomit is so bad that Redcrosse loses his strength.
Seeing this, the monster then unleashes all her little offspring on him.

They're annoying, but don't really seem able to hurt him. Redcrosse feels just like a shepherd, who, when the sun sets, gets attacked by gnats. They don't hurt, but they sure are annoying and hard to get rid of. Redcrosse is now really angry, and afraid not so much of dying but of the shame of not winning, so he vows to win and rushes at her with god-like strength Her children freak out when she dies and run over and start drinking her blood, "making her death their life" I.
Redcrosse is pretty grossed out by this and watches as each little monster, after drinking up his mother, actually bursts apart and dies. Redcrosse thinks they deserve their death and is happy that these gross little enemies killed themselves without any help from him. The lady sees Redcrosse's victory and congratulates him, saying that he has shown himself to be worthy of armor and that he has won a great victory—she hopes many other great victories are in his future. They then find their way out of the forest by sticking to one path and following it to the end, and continue on their journey looking for adventures.
After a long time, they come across an old man with bare feet, a long grey beard, and a book hanging from his belt. He seems extremely sad, perhaps repenting for something he's done. Redcrosse greets him and asks if he knows any super cool adventures in the area that he could begin. The old man, pretty reasonably, asks Redcrosse why in the world an old hermit who doesn't know anything about the world but just sits and repents would know something like that.
However, he can tell them all about an evil man who has done terrible things to the country they're in. Redcrosse responds that he would love to hear about someone like that, since that's the kind of person who knights just live to kill. The old man responds that this evil person lives in a far away wilderness that no living soul goes to. The lady interjects and reminds Redcrosse that he's pretty worn out from his last adventure and that he might want to rest that night before embarking on another fight. The old man chimes in and agrees with the lady, and Redcrosse is convinced.

They all spend the night with the old man. The old man lives in a hermitage a secluded holy place , far away from anyone else, with an adjoining chapel where he frequently prays. Even though the old man's house isn't the most happening spot, they all enjoy resting and hearing the stories the old man tells. Night falls and they all sleep very heavily… maybe too heavily. The old man turns out to be a magician and casts spells on them to give them nightmares. May ever passe, but thorough great distresse.

The Sunne that measures heaven all day long,. At night doth baite his steedes the Ocean waves emong.
The Faerie Queene — Volume 01 by Edmund Spenser
Then with the Sunne take Sir, your timely rest,. Untroubled night they say gives counsell best.
For this same night. The knight was well content:. So with that godly father to his home they went.
Thereby a Christall streame did gently play,. Which from a sacred fountaine welled forth alway. Ne looke for entertainement, where none was:. Rest is their feast, and all things at their will;. With faire discourse the evening so they pas:. For that old man of pleasing wordes had store,. And well could file his tongue as smooth as glas;. The drouping Night thus creepeth on them fast,. And the sad humour loading their eye liddes,. Sweet slombring deaw, the which to sleepe them biddes. Unto their lodgings then his guestes he riddes:.
Where when all drownd in deadly sleepe he findes,. His Magick bookes and artes of sundry kindes,. He seekes out mighty charmes, to trouble sleepy mindes. Let none them read thereof did verses frame,. And cursed heaven, and spake reprochfull shame. Great Gorgon, Prince of darknesse and dead night,.
