Oxford Guides to Chaucer: Troilus and Criseyde

£29.99

Product description

2002 reprint published by the Clarendon Press.

The three Oxford Guides to Chaucer were written by scholars of international repute, with the purpose of summarising what is known about his work and offering interpretations based on recent advances in both historical knowledge and theoretical understanding. Barry Windeatt's contribution to the series offers students the most comprehensive introduction to Troilus and Criseyde yet produced. It includes the fullest and most convenient account of Chaucer's use of sources, the first extended analysis of the poem's generic originality, and an invaluable commentary on all aspects of the poem that is Chaucer's most ambitious single achievement - its structure, themes, characterisation, and style. It also contains a survey of literary responses to Troilus in the three centuries following Chaucer's death. Combining the informative substance of a reference book with the coherence of a critical reading, the Guide has taken its place as the standard introduction to Troilus and Criseyde.

Contains an extensive and useful index.

Very slight amount of wear on the corners but nonetheless in very good condition.
