The Faerie Queens Captive
The newer generations never knew they had magic and were made to believe that they were being protected by the McAllisters as the last tribe of fairies. A fairy named Dust was the last survivor of the volunteers. Unsure if his Queen had survived the journey to the other world, he lost all hopes as he saw his kind suffer and die one by one.
Book I, Cantos vi, vii & viii
The fairy presence in the McAllister family was kept a secret although it made them one of the the few magicians with a source of magic after magic was cut of from all the worlds. The fairies were eventually freed when their new Queen broke their deal with the help of Fen and Julia Wicker allowing them to massacre the McAllisters save for Irene and reunite with their people at fillory.
Fairies usually cannot be perceived by humans. To do so, they must make a deal with a fairy, have a deal made on their behalf or use the Truth Key. Each fairy have the appearance of pale humanoids that possess large black eyes, pointed ears, slick back hair and a lack of eyebrows. They thrive in moist and humid environments which they also require to plant fairy eggs.
In the absence of such conditions, fairies would compensate by taking long baths. Like other Magical Creatures, fairies have magic independent of the Wellspring and can perform great acts as the the '"living embodiment of magic". Fairy magic is powerful and ill-defined which they use to make "deals" to leverage for power, levitate and perform other acts such as fixing the Wellspring. It does not require hand gestures or words, simply their mind, as shown when Sky created a flower in her hand simply by imagining it. The body of a Fairy can be reduced to a cocaine-like powder that, when snorted, allows magicians to perform fairy magic for a certain amount of time.
However, fairy dust does not appear to be compatible with humans and can suffer physical ramifications in the form of physical illness and tissue decay with prolonged use. However, Una steps in and stops him and pulls him out of the cave of Despair.

Seeing her knight's weakness, Una now knows for certain that he needs help, and so, she leads him to the House of Holiness. There, Caelia reigns with her three daughters, Fidelia, Sperenza, and Charissa, and many other virtuous people live with them. Caelia greets Una and, hearing of Redcrosse's condition, commands her daughters to aid his recovery.
First, Fidelia instructs him in discipline and the gospel; then, Sperenza comforts him, so that his sins do not again lead to despair. Next, hard Patience and bitter Penance make him suffer for the crimes he has committed, to purge himself. After instructing him, she takes him to a hospital where seven charitable men tend to his physical ailments.
Now fully recovered in body and spirit, Redcrosse receives one more grace--he is taken up to a high hill by Contemplation, a wise old hermit.
The Faerie Queen's Captive
Contemplation tells Redcrosse his history and future: He is not a faerie but born from a mortal king--he was stolen by a faerie and brought to Faerie Land. He is destined to become a great saint of England, and his true name is George. Much amazed by this news, Redcrosse returns down the hill to the House of Holiness. There, Una is eager to make for her castle, and so they soon depart.
Despite the enthusiasm the poet and his work received, Spenser's experimental diction was "largely condemned" before it received the acclaim it has today. Sugden argues in The grammar of Spenser's Faerie Queene that the archaisms reside "chiefly in vocabulary, to a high degree in spelling, to some extent in the inflexions, and only slightly in the syntax". Samuel Johnson also commented critically on Spenser's diction, with which he became intimately acquainted during his work on A Dictionary of the English Language , and "found it a useful source for obsolete and archaic words"; Johnson, however, mainly considered Spenser's early pastoral poems, a genre of which he was not particularly fond.
The diction and atmosphere of The Faerie Queene relied on much more than just Middle English ; for instance, classical allusions and classical proper names abound—especially in the later books—and he coined some names based on Greek , such as "Poris" and "Phao lilly white. Spenser's language in The Faerie Queene , as in The Shepheardes Calender , is deliberately archaic, though the extent of this has been exaggerated by critics who follow Ben Jonson 's dictum, that "in affecting the ancients Spenser writ no language.
Examples of medieval archaisms in morphology and diction include:.
Numerous adaptations in the form of children's literature have been made — the work was a popular choice in the 19th and early 20th century with over 20 different versions written, with the earliest being E. Bradburn's Legends from Spencer's Fairy Queen, for Children , written in the form of a dialogue between mother and children — the 19th-century versions oft concentrated on the moral aspect of the tale.
The Edwardian era was particularly rich in adaptation for children, and the works richly illustrated, with contributing artists including A.
Walker , Gertrude Demain Hammond , T. Robinson , Frank C. According to Richard Simon Keller, George Lucas 's Star Wars film also contains elements of a loose adaptation, as well as being influenced by other works, with parallels including the story of the Red Cross Knight championing Una against the evil Archimago in the original compared with Lucas's Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader.

Keller sees extensive parallels between the film and book one of Spenser's work, stating "[A]lmost everything of importance that we see in the Star Wars movie has its origin in The Faerie Queene , from small details of weaponry and dress to large issues of chivalry and spirituality".
