Troilus and Criseyde and the Minor Poems
- Course Number: ENGL 152B
Check on GOLD.
- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 152B
- Quarter: Winter 2020
This course is a close study of Geoffrey Chaucer’s long poem Troilus and Criseyde, which is about love, war, and time — the distant past, the unknowable future. We will learn to comment closely on Chaucer’s crafted stanzas alongside broader considerations of the poem’s thematic and philosophical preoccupations. If there’s time, we will also bring Chaucer’s poem into dialogue with some later poetic responses — Henryson’s Testament of Cresseid, and Lavinia Greenlaw’s A Double Sorrow.
