This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...2; cf. l.e., cols. 1-2, " si promentis alicus vestes manibus strigerentvir et ajua-rum multitudinem efiunderenl;." parison of the analogous passages of the three authors shows that the English poet deferred to the authority of Guido when in conflict with that of Boccaccio--in this instance for artistic reasons if for no other cause. Thus, while Boccaccio tells us of his Griseida, that--" Ell' era grande, ed alla sua grandezza Rispondean bene i membri tutti quanti,"1 Chaucer writes, --" Criseyde mene was of hir stature," in this as in his other lines, --" Thereto of shap, of face, and eek of chere There mighte been no fairer creature,"2 " And, save her browes joyneden y-fere, Ther nas no lak, in ought I can espyen," 8 1 Fil., I. 27, 1-2, used by Chaucer in his description of Troilus (T. and C., V. 827-828), which is similar to that given in R. de T., 5405-5406, for which there is no equivalent in the Historia (sig. e 2 verso, col. 1).

T. and C., V. 806-808, -8 T. and C., V. 813-814. following the passage in Guido: --" Breseida autem filia Calcas multa fuit spe-ciositate decora nec longa nec brevis nec mmium macilenta, lacteo profusa candore, genis roseis, flavis crinibus. Sed superciliis junctis, quorum junctura dum multa piloxitate tumesceret modi-cam inconvenientam presentabat." 1 1 Historia, sig. e 2 recto, col. 1; cf. Dares, 17, 7-8, "Briseidam formosam non alta statura... superciliis junctis," and R. de T., 5258, 52G1-5262: --" N'ert trop petite ne trop granz." " Mes le sorcil qui li giseient Auquetes li mesaveneient." A single word in the first line suggests Dares as the source, but his statement as to Criseyde's height is not as definite as that of Benoit and Guido; and only in the...
