Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

3 editions published in 1952 in English and Undetermined and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Troilus and Criseyde, one of the most beautiful and one of the longest of Chaucer's poems, was written between the years 1379 and 1383, when the author was in his early forties. Derived principally from Giovanni Boccaccio's Il Filostrato and the Historia Troiae of Guido delle Colonne, it containes exquitse translations from Petrarch and Dante. Numerous editions have appeared since that of Thomas Thynne in 1532, and the poem now takes its rightful place in Everyman's Library for the first time. Thie new edition has been prepared by Mr John Warrington from the celebrated Campsall Manuscript, which was made for King Henry V when he was Prince of Wales; and where the reading is doubtful or obviously corrupt, recourse has been had to other manuscript sources and the emendations of former editors. The spelling has been very slightly modernized; but in no case have the words, metre or sound of the original been altered. In order to overcome the remaining difficulties, arising from the unfamiliar vocabulary and syntax of Middle English, words and shorter phrases are 'translated' in the margin; longer paraphrases are given in footnotes. The reader is thus spared the necessity of constant reference to glossaries and notes at the end of the volume. (Inside cover)

The Canterbury tales of Geoffrey Chaucer : a new modern English prose translation by R.M. Lumiansky ; preface by Mark Van Doren ; illustrations by H. Lawrence Hoffman by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

3 editions published between 1960 and 1971 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The procession that crosses Chaucer's pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The Knight, the Miller, the Friar, the Squire, the Prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters -- including Chaucer himself -- are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses. When it is remembered that Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. But Chaucer's genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales
