About the Author:

Barry Windeatt is editor of the Longman edition of Troilus and Criseyde. He had translated and edited The Book of for Penguin and co-edited Chaucer Traditions: Studies in Honour of Derek Brewer (CUP, 1990)

Review:


"A rich compendium of knowledge, making the volume well worth its price. Windeatt is to be commended for the voluminous material he has assimilated and for providing a source for a better understanding not only of the Troilus but of Chaucer's other works as well. Highly recommended."--Choice


"I am really impressed with this text and would like to use it as a supplement in one of my major Chaucer courses."--William D. McGlone, Iona College


"There is something to be learned or remembered on every page....Windeatt deserves credit for fashioning a book which might have the potential to be dry or intimidating, but turns out to be neither. His graceful and clear writing, coupled with his sound critical sense, keeps us reading and mining his valuable book for more insights about the poem. And our searches are rewarded. Whether you consult this book as a first reference work on the poem or as a refresher course, under Windeatt's able guidance the poem does not seem at all difficult to contact."--AEstel


"The writing of such a guide might seem a modest task, performed in service to students and colleagues. Windeatt's accomplishment is to do this well and at the same time to offer far more. I expect his guide to serve us admirably for a long time to come."--Studies In The Age of Chaucer


"Windeatt has provided a judicious, sensitive, and intelligent commentary on the many topics this book addresses....His criticism is characteristically elegant and suggestive, and his scholarship and accuracy are impeccable."--Speculum
