Overview

`Each essay opens up new directions without ignoring past critical trends...an important guide for new approaches to the text and meaning of Troilus and Criseyde and, as such, an important contribution to Chaucerian scholarship.' CHOICE`Are we to take the tone from the ending and read the whole poem ironically? Or read it sympathetically and dismiss the ending...? These interesting pieces share a determination to deal thoroughly with what appear minor aspects of the poem and see if those offer any guide to the whole.'
