Geoffrey Chaucer

Troilus and Cressida

A modernised version

Troilus taking leave of Cressida

Book I - Troilus's Love

Book II - Love Encouraged

Book III - The Consummation

Book IV - The Separation

Book V - The Betrayal

This version aims to provide a readable and accessible modernisation of the poem while preserving Chaucer's rhymes and diction wherever possible, at the same time eliminating all archaic words which would require marginal notes to explain.
