This chapter considers the differences in Spenser and Shakespeare's approaches to poetics, psychology and patronage, first examining the allegory of The Faerie Queene and comparing the way Spenser and Shakespeare portray human identity. It concludes that, while Spenser and Shakespeare both use all four modes of being, they grant opposing generic scenarios and modes of psychic management.

Keywords:   allegory, human identity, modes of being, generic scenarios, psychic management, polarised approaches
