What’s in Criseyde's Book?

Chaucer Review 54.1 (2019): 91-115.

Questions the identity of the book that is being read to Criseyde in Book II of TC, arguing that the answer, the title itself, cannot be known. Examines the descriptions of the book, from both Criseyde and Pandarus, and argues that the unknowability of the title mirrors Chaucer's own engagement with his sources.
