Originally published by J.M. Dent and Sons Ltd., 1934.
In this volume Gordon presents the four great medieval versions of the love of Troilus and Criseida: Benoît de Sainte-Maure's Roman de Troie, written in approximately 1160 and the earliest surviving version of the story; Giovanni Boccaccio's It Filostrato (c 1338), which drew on Benoît's tale for one of its two main sources; Georffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde c 1385), for centuries considered his best work; and Robert Henryson's Testament of Cresseid (c 1490), which functions as a continuation of the story Chaucer tells.
