Here are tales told by members from all parts of English society of the th century reflecting on life as they travel the road from Southwark to Canterbury, 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, King of the barnyard Chanticleer struts about all day When a fox bursts into his domain dupes him into crowing and then grabs him in a viselike grip Chanticleer must do some quick thinking to save himself and his barnyard kingdom, Contexts connects the poems to their classical and medieval foundations and includes works by Virgil Ovid Cicero Boethius Dante and Boccaccio among others From the wealth of scholarly work available the editor has chosen for Criticism six essays that address the poems central themes Contributors include Charles Muscatine A C Spearing R T Lenaghan Richard Firth Green Elaine Tuttle Hansen and Steven Kruger A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included
