English - Chaucer

Can anyone out there help me with the story of Troilus and Criseyde? I have to answer some questions but I honestly am having a hard time understanding the Middle English Translation.

This is a modernized English version of this poem. Scroll down for the unabbreviated version, and pay attention to the margin notes and footnotes. You'll need to have Acrobat Reader on your computer to open these links. You can download and install it here if you don't already have it: http://www.adobe.com (Be sure to download and install the FREE version.)

This version is truly middle English -- almost unreadable to us! But it's good for comparison with the one above if you don't already have it.
