    Spenser was an interesting man. He wrote The Faerie Queene, the longest poem in the english language, 36,000 lines , and then died of starvation at aged 46 despite being best mates with Lady Jayne Grey's father (she who was queen for 10 days) and Sir Walter Raleigh

    He also devised Spenserian Metre, aka Spenserian Stanza Form, which goes ABABBCBCC which if you knock off the last C, was probably stolen from Chaucers almost identicle metre called Rhyme Royal. No one after these two really used either of these weird metres until Byron came along 400 years later

    He was rewarded lands in Ireland for his troubles.

    No wonder he got trippy with his Faerie Queen.
