"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."--Jacket

The English language in America by George Philip Krapp( Book )

21 editions published between 1925 and 1961 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of the English language in America has covered three hundred years, and American English--in reflecting new, complicated developments in social and economic conditions during that time--has experienced some of its most interesting changes. Language changes sporadically, and many things that seem new in American speech are actually old expressions in new surroundings. Examples and illustrations are accompanied by sources and dates, and direct quotation of passages as often as possible. The arguments over the moving forces of language change are not addressed--slang and literary usages are both influences. The American dialect is genuine when it is genuinely used--but who shall say which is the quintessentially genuine?
Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

11 editions published between 1932 and 1971 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three Oxford Guides to Chaucer are written by scholars of international repute, with the purpose of summarizing what is known about his works and offering interpretations based on recent advances in both historical knowledge and theoretical understanding. Barry Windeatt's volume on Troilus and Criseyde examines the poem that is Chaucer's most ambitious single achievement, his masterpiece, and one of the very finest narrative poems in the English language. The story of love fulfilled and trust betrayed - of how Troilus and Criseyde discover love, and how she abandons him for Diomede after her departure from Troy - is presented by Chaucer with profound insight into human character and explored through its philosophical and spiritual dimensions. This Oxford Guide is the most comprehensive introduction to Troilus and Criseyde yet produced. It includes the fullest and most convenient account of Chaucer's imaginative use of his sources, the first extended analysis of the poem's originality of genre, and a readable commentary on all aspects of the work, its structure, themes, characterization, and style. It also contains a survey of literary responses to Troilus in the three centuries following Chaucer's death. The Guide combines the informative substance of a reference book with the coherence of a critical reading, and is set to establish itself as a standard work on Troilus and Criseyde
