4.0 out of 5 stars Unadorned text in original middle English 10 April 2011
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the complete text of Troilus in middle English with no glosses or notes. The five books are bookmarked at the start so that you can jump to each one, and there are line numbers throughout, though no stanza numbers.

If you are looking for a translation into modern English this isn't it - but for a handy Kindle version of a superlative and hugely influential medieval text, this is excellent.

1.0 out of 5 stars very good 24 Dec. 2012
By Neil
Format:Kindle Edition
this book is very good but i dont think that anyone should read it as it is also very boring. the narratoial style is polysemic and often profoundly ironic exhibiting a typical tone of false humility. the characters of troilus and criseyde are both somewhat irritating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You 1 Mar. 2013
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you with all my heart to the volunteers who transcribed this. It's even better than I remembered. I had to smile at that first review on Amazon. Unreadable! Well, the language does take some getting used to, but it's not as hard as it looks, and once you get going, what pleasure. Thanks again.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you want a different approach from Shakespeare. 12 July 2013
By Adriana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this poem, if you want a writer that treats Criseyde in a more agreeable way and not as judgmental and punishable as Shakepeare did, Chaucer is your man.
The only thing, as often happens in this Kindle editions, there are no numbered lines, so if you need it for school, it is a bit difficult to follow.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it 6 Feb. 2014

Even though this was free, it isn't worth it. I spent more time trying to just read the words rather than understanding the context.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't read this 17 Dec. 2013
By rosanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not versed in the syle of language this is wrtiien in. It is, probably, in the original. I wish I had known this before I bought it. I'll try another version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable 23 Jan. 2013
By Oracle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I understand this is an intriguing tale but, unfortunately, it is written in not a quite understandable form of old English or Welsh. I gave up trying after the first page.
