Una is the true faith-a symbol of truth and faithfulness. Una enlists RCK's help to defeat the monster and free her parents.

Duessa is the false church and is associated with the House of Pride which protrays all of the corruption in the world (there are fallen princes there). Duessa is used to lead Redcrosse astray and thus to prevent him from finishing his quest.

Metrical tale is simply a story in verse. Metrical romance is a heroic story in verse. For example, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales are metrical tales, and Spenser's Faerie Queene is a metrical romance.

What is a nine-line poem called?

A nine-line poem is technically called a nonet, but the scarcity of the form means that the word is very rarely used, or found.Most poems set in nine-line stanzas follow the pattern of Sir Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene: eight lines in iambic pentameter, followed by a ninth line set in iambic hexameter (the extra foot, as well as the 12-syllable line itself, is called an Alexandrine.)The usual rhyme scheme for such a stanza is A-B-A-B-B-C-B-C-C. The form is popular enough to have acquired its own term: a Spenserian stanza.

Can you translate modern English into middle English?

Middle English, like that used by Chaucer, can certainly be translated into Modern or Present Day English as indicated by the many many translations of Chaucer's work available... so of course the opposite is also true. Edmond Spencer wrote The Fairie Queene in a faux Middle English as praise to English Literary tradition; so there's no reason someone today could not do the same. See the Blog "Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog" as an example.You might need to invent some words though. Middle English didn't have words for things like "laser" or "cell phone" or "computer", so you'd have to come up with some phrase for those concepts (or just use the modern word, as in the "hath a blog" title above).
