Hours & Credits
The ancient story of the Trojan war and the fall of Troy was current in the Middle Ages in many versions.
Chaucer experimented with it in the form of Troilus and Criseyde, an account of the betrayal of the Trojan
prince Troilus by Criseyde. This module will begin with a study of Chaucer's poem (in Middle English), and
its use of ancient history to focus issues of moment in England in the late fourteenth century. It will
continue with investigations of two fifteenth-century poems, John Lydgate's Troy Book and Robert Henryson's
Testament of Cresseid, both of which respond to Chaucer's writing while at the same time exploring in
other ways the matter of Troy.
