This lecture/seminar considers what Chaucer himself regarded as his masterpiece, the romance of Troilus and Criseyde. The text is indeed the work of a master hand. It offers an in-depth analysis of the human psyche no other medieval author had attempted before. The romance, heavily influenced in terms of narrative by Boccaccio's Teseida, moves beyond its generic potential with highly philosophical dialogues and soliloquies which make this composition one of the most touching and subtle productions of its time.


Set text: The Riverside Chaucer, ed. Larry Benson, 3rd ed. (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1987).
