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.
