Commentary

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Entered by TH2, this poem is a transcription of Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, Book I, 946-52. TH2 may have copied the lines from Thynne’s edition of Chaucer (c. 1532). In this section, the speaker describes contrary things that exist side-by-side: weeds and wholesome herbs, nettles and roses, low valleys and high hills, dark night and glad morning, and sorrow and joy. The Devonshire Manuscript contains others verses from Troilus and Criseyde (see the Commentaryon “And now my pen alas wyth wyche I wryte” (29v)).
