9780140442397: Troilus and Criseyde (Classics)

Set against the epic backdrop of the battle of Troy, Troilus and Criseyde is an evocative story of love and loss. When Troilus, the son of Priam, falls in love with the beautiful Criseyde, he is able to win her heart with the help of his cunning uncle Pandarus, and the lovers experience a brief period of bliss together. But the pair are soon forced apart by the inexorable tide of war and - despite their oath to remain faithful - Troilus is ultimately betrayed. Regarded by many as the greatest love poem of the Middle Ages, Troilus and Criseyde skilfully combines elements of comedy and tragedy to form an exquisite meditation on the fragility of romantic love, and the fallibility of humanity.

English Studies

Book Description:

Chaucer's only complete poem articulates his understanding of love and its language as it charts the fast wheeling of Fortune which elevates Troylus with love, but sinks Criseyde into an irrevocable betrayal.
