Description
In the earliest of Geoffrey Chaucer's major works, an insomniac poet lies in bed reading, and when he finally falls asleep, has a radiant vision of himself in a room whose windows depict the history of Troy. The poet joins a hunting party with the emperor Octavian, and meets a black knight mourning the death of the woman he loves. Bernard O'Donoghue's foreword and E.B. Richmond's introduction provide context for this visionary 14th-century poem of love and loss, while Chaucer's Middle English text is paired with a modern English version on the opposing pages.
