    The pentameter couplets are modeled on Chaucer's later work in the Canterbury Tales, while the rhyme royal stanzas of the Envoy recall the Parliament of Fowls, Troilus, and works probably composed earlier and then added to the Canterbury Tales. Lydgate's ambition is to write in an elevated style appropriate to his subject matter. Author: William Shakespeare. Publisher: Simon and Schuster ISBN: Category: Drama Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» For Troilus and Cressida, set during the Trojan War, Shakespeare turned to the Greek poet Homer, whose epic poems the Iliad and the Odyssey treat the war and its aftermath, and to Geoffrey Chaucer, author of The Canterbury Tales and the great romance of the war.

    "The Reeve's Tale" is the third story told in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. The reeve, named Oswald in the text, is the manager of a large estate who reaped incredible profits for his master and is described in the Tales as skinny and bad-tempered. The Reeve had once been a carpenter, a profession mocked in the previous Miller's Tale. § Date of the Work. In my introductory remarks to the Legend of Good Women, I refer to the close connection that is easily seen to subsist between Chaucer’s translation of Boethius and his Troilus and Criseyde. All critics seem now to agree in placing these two works in close conjunction, and in making the prose work somewhat the earlier of the two; though it is not at all unlikely that.

    Troilus and Cressida, one of the series of Shakespeare works performed by the BBC Time-Life ensemble in , is difficult to fit into any genre, though it was originally classified as a tragedy in the First Folio of , before it was replaced by Timon of Athens and then reinserted between the histories and tragedies with strangely no mention. William Caxton, the first printer of books in English, published a “Canterbury Tales” in Edmund Spenser, Chaucer’s first great successor, called him “the well of English undefiled.”Author: Joan Acocella.

Considered one of Chaucer’s finest poems, second only to The Canterbury Tales in richness and depth, Troilus and Cressida is a tragic love story set against the background of the siege of Troy by the Greeks.

Written in the s, it presents Troilus, son of Priam and younger brother of Hector, as a Trojan warrior of renown who sees, and falls deeply in love with, the beautiful Cressida. This is immediately clear in the farcical pretence of secrecy in the conduct of Troilus and Cressida’s affair.
