"Often called the first great English novel, Troilus and Cressida, a tragic love story set during the siege of Troy, is Chaucer's masterpiece. Troilus, a valiant warrior, is scornful of love until he catches a glimpse of Cressida. With the help of his friend and her uncle Pandarus, Troilus wins Cressida over. But their happiness is destroyed when, summoned to a Greek camp, Cressida seeks the protection of one Diomede and ultimately betrays Troilus."--BOOK JACKET
The romaunt of the Rose, and Le roman de la Rose by Guillaume ( Book )
69 editions published between 1440 and 1974 in 5 languages and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Digitisation of Chaucer's Middle English poem the Romaunt of the Rose, MS Glasgow, Hunter 409 (V.3.7). This is Chaucer's incomplete translation of Le Roman de la Rose, originally composed in French in the 13th century by Guillaume de Lorris and Jean de Meun. Although the question of the authorship of this translation has caused considerable argument, it has become generally accepted that Chaucer at least wrote the first section to line 1705, and that this was completed at an early stage in his literary career before his principles of versification were fixed. This manuscript was copied in about 1440, some years after Chaucer's death. As well as digital copies of all the folios of the manuscript, a transcription of the text is included, along with a digitised version of the first printed edition of the poem from 1532 by William Thynne (the text of which was taken from this manuscript copy)

The wife of Bath's prologue and tale, from the Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer ( Book )

The Wyves Tale of Bathe and prologue are among the best-known of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

The Canterbury Tales gather twenty-nine of literature's most enduring (and endearing) characters in a vivid group portrait that captures the full spectrum of medieval society, from the exalted Knight to the humble plowman.
