Troilus And Criseyde Pdf
Troilus and Criseyde (/ˈtrɔɪləs … ˈkrɛsɪdə/) is an epic poem by Geoffrey Chaucer which re-tells in Middle English the tragic story of the lovers Troilus and Criseyde set against a backdrop of war during the Siege of Troy. It was composed using rime royale and probably completed during the mid-1380s. Many Chaucer scholars regard it as the poet’s finest work. As a finished long poem, it is more self-contained than the better known but ultimately unfinished Canterbury Tales. This poem is often considered the source of the phrase: “all good things must come to an end” (3.615).
Troilus And Criseyde Summary
Calchas, a soothsayer, foresees the fall of Troy and abandons the city in favor of the Greeks; his daughter, Criseyde, receives some ill will on account of her father’s betrayal. Troilus, a warrior of Troy, publicly mocks love and is punished by the God of Love by being struck with an irreconcilable desire for Criseyde, whom he sees passing through the temple. With the help of sly Pandarus, Criseyde’s uncle, Troilus, and Criseyde begin to exchange letters. Eventually, Pandarus develops a plan to urge the two into bed together; Troilus swoons when he thinks the plan is going amiss, but Pandarus and Criseyde revive him. Pandarus leaves, and Troilus and Criseyde spend a night of bliss together. Calchas eventually persuades the Greeks to exchange a prisoner of war, Antenor, for his daughter Criseyde. Hector, of Troy, objects; as does Troilus, although he does not voice his concern.
