Commentary

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 This entry is an excerpt from Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde (Book III, line 1058). TH2 most likely copied from Thynne’s edition of Chaucer (c. 1532). The page was torn lengthwise, which removed some writing. The scribe most likely entered the line of verse on four graphical lines after the page was torn. The page was probably torn during the time of active involvement in the compilation since the style of handwriting matches the rest of the manuscript. The Devonshire Manuscript contains numerous other verses from Troilus and Criseyde (see the Commentaryon “And now my pen alas wyth wyche I wryte” (29v)).
