1 For an essay that comes to similar conclusions about Continental literature of the period, see Cohen 2004. 2 The dedication is dated from Kilcolman 27 December 1591, but the poem was not published until 1595. 3 Old Father Mole represents two ranges north of Kilcoman, the Ballyhoura mountains and the Galties. Galtymore is the highest peak. Mulla is the Awbeg river (Deane 1991, 1: 225n). 4 The Allo or Broadwater is now called the Blackwater. On the topos of the river in Spenser’s poetry and its tradition, see Herendeen 1981; and more generally, Herendeen 1986.

Spenser’s account becomes the prelude to a greater loss. 54). This mythic loss prepares the way for hostile forces to re-gather, as Diana lays a heavy curse: To weet, that Wolves, where she was wont to space Should harbour’d be, and all those Woods deface, And Thieves should rob and spoile the Coast around. Since which, those Woods, and all that goodly Chase, Doth to this day with Wolves and Thieves abound: Which too-too true that lands in-dwellers since have found. 55) The eroticized landscape experiences romantic fulfillment despite Diana’s punishment, but the ‘in-dwellers’ (of which Spenser is apparently one) remain beset by wolves and thieves.

158–63, has argued that Spenser refers to himself by the Irish term file or poet here, suggesting the creation of an Irish identity for his poetic production (Herron mistakenly uses the plural filí rather than the singular file which in fact matches Spenser’s spelling, although in terms of scansion it is worth noting that the Irish file is disyllabic). See also Canny 2001. On this subject, see Pagden 1995. The essay, which dates from early 1624, was originally intended as a pamphlet for separate publication.
