Description
Written in the late 14th century and set during the siege of Troy, this tragic verse romance is considered by many to be—as C.S. Lewis called it—Chaucer's greatest poem, with a far-reaching literary legacy. Trojan warrior Troilus is scornful of love, and is punished by the gods with an overwhelming desire for Cressida, the daughter of a prophet who has turned to the Greeks. Though Troilus wins over the virtuous, tenderhearted Cressida, their happiness is destroyed after she is taken from Troy to a Greek camp, and realizes that her best chance for a future is to throw in with the Greek warrior Diomedes.
