Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer

Often called the first great English novel, Troilus and Cressida, a tragic love story set during the siege of Troy, is Chaucer’s masterpiece. Troilus, a valiant warrior, is scornful of love until he catches a glimpse of Cressida. With the help of his friend and her uncle Pandarus, Troilus wins Cressida over. But their happiness is destroyed when, summoned to a Greek camp, Cressida seeks the protection of one Diomede and ultimately betrays Troilus.

This book was good but i've read better. I thought the writting was good but it just didn't keep me interested. Try reading Chaucer and War by John Pratt.

Chaucer creates a new approach to the tradition of courtly love in medieval French and English literature. A master of style, he brilliantly shows the complexity of love and also the folly inherent in courtly love. A great read, funny and sad with beautiful language.
