About the Book

A 1932 translation into modern English of a text written by Chaucer in c.1385, the story being set in Classical Antiquity around 800 B.C. and being a love story concerning its two principal characters, the Trojan soldier Troilus and his Greek paramour, Cressida, set during the ten years of the Trojan War between Greece and the city state of Troy. The story is based on Classical sources, principally Homer's verses describing the Fall of Troy, and tells of the love between a hero of Troy and a Greek lady, at a time when they belonged to opposite sides in that war, a love beset by the difficulties which the conflict caused them.
