The direct domain “thefairiequeene.org” will no longer be available to access the adjunct site dedicated to Spenser’s The Faerie Queene.
A couple of months back I decided to make the FQ website into a sub-site on my long-standing site dedicated to general reading (and critical thinking) … A Celebration of Reading or ACOR. All the secondary pages that once were a part of the FQ site were moved to ACOR and the FQ site was retained to allow a second weblog stream, one dedicated to The Faerie Queene and the other more general (including the Experimental Fiction (XFX) site).
From ACOR you can access the Faerie Queene weblog by following the link under the ACTIVE menu. This allows a fairly straightforward access to the FQ weblog and also allows more general access to the ACOR weblog and ancillary reading pages. The FQ weblog can still be accessed directly by changing your link to be thefaeriequeenedotorg.wordpress.com … but then you’ll miss what’s new at ACOR.
Over at a related weblog site we have started a reading of Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. This subject came up some months ago and since there were three or four other people interested in reading The Faerie Queene, I decided to start a web log dedicated to the poem and to other literature in that period or other literature that influenced Spenser and The Faerie Queene.
I still haven’t firmed up a method for reading and commenting on The Faerie Queene but I figure it will work itself out, especially with advice from others. I know that there are several excellent sites for The Faerie Queene but they are mostly static information and I hope my web log, although amateurish and a little random will give other readers a friendly opportunity to follow along with the reading and hopefully toss a question or comment into the discussion now and then.
But no matter what, I will be reading The Faerie Queen again this year and hope to make comments about my experience as I go along.
If you’re curious and especially if you’re thinking about joining in on the reading, the site is The Faerie Queene.
Note: The referenced site is no longer being updated but that doesn’t mean you should give up on reading The Faerie Queene.
