The only collection in English of the major medieval versions of the story of .Troilus and Criseyde. - from Benoit de Sainte-Maure, Boccaccio, Chaucer, and Henryson. Reprinted from the 1964 edition. First published in 1934.





Originally published by J.M. Dent and Sons Ltd., 1934. In this volume Gordon presents the four great medieval versions of the love of Troilus and Criseida: Benoit de Sainte-Maure's Roman de Troie, written in approximately 1160 and the earliest surviving version of the story; Giovanni Boccaccio's It Filostrato (c 1338), which drew on Benoit's tale for one of its two main sources; Georffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde c 1385), for centuries considered his best work; and Robert Henryson's Testament of Cresseid (c 1490), which functions as a continuation of the story Chaucer tells.
