Chaucer and the Dido-and-Aeneas Story.

Mediaeval Studies 25 (1963): 148-59.

Describes five medieval redactions of Virgil’s “Aeneid,” “widely separated geographically and chronologically,” assessing how they “medievalized” the material in conventional ways, and using these “conventions” to discuss Chaucer’s successful treatments of the Dido/Aeneas story in HF as an “exemplum” and in LGW as “a thoroughly integrated narrative.”
