This article originally appeared in Modem Language Quarterly 53 (): A LTHOUGH Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde is cited and used by many English writers in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the two major reworkings of the love story before Shakespeare are by John Lydgate in his Troy Book () and by Robert Henryson in his late fifteenth-century Author: Daniel Pinti. Written between , the Siege falls between Lydgate's eight-year labor on the Troy Book (), commissioned by Henry V, and the monumental Fall of Princes (), translated and composed at the source,5 so Lydgate's subject matter for his Chaucerian eulogy is even.

The result was Troy Book: 30, lines of decasyllabic rhyming couplets, completed in and dedicated to its patron—now King Henry V.

The manuscript copies of Chaucer's works preserve valuable information concerning Chaucer's linguistic practices and the ways in which scribes responded to these.
