Manuscript is an argument about the argument of the poem Troilus and Criseyde
. The author makes no claim to provide a summary of the extensive critical work that has accumulated around Troilus and Criseyde
but sets out to demonstrate that Chaucer’s poem is single, self-consistent, and coherent throughout. In consequence Troilus and Criseyde
can once again be considered as Chaucer’s finished masterpiece in which profundity of thought is matched by clarity of form and eloquence of style.
