Much of the Faerie Queen is full of pastoral landscapes and the beauty of nature. The Faerie Queene, however, also represents nature in a negative tone with the adventures of Redcrosse Knight and his progression throughout the poem’s six books; the knight ultimately suffers due to his humanly faults and inconsistency in keeping to the chivalric code of duty.
