In history of English literature ‘Epithalamion’ and ‘Prothalamion’ both are the most important work of Edmund Spenser. ‘Epithalamion’ by Spenser is an ‘ode’, a wedding poem which deals with the celebration of marriage. Whereas, the ‘Prothalamion’ is a spousal verse written on the occasion of the wedding of Elizabeth and Catherine Somerset (daughters of Edward Somerset) “The Earl of Worcester”.
Therefore, “Time and Temporality” has an essential difference in both the work as according to Spencer physical love is a love that is meant to be exhausted with the time, i.e. the state of existing within or having some relationship with time. whereas religious love is unending, so the physical love is defined as temporality and so on.
Also, time refers in Epithalamion as when ancient Greek God used to sing poems and songs at the wedding, whereas, time in Prothalamion refers to the date back in to 1596 when Spencer wrote innovative poems.
