Critical sites about Troilus and Criseyde

Pandarus, the Narrator and the Author in Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde
“In Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, there is a close similarity between the author and his creations of Pandarus and the Narrator. This is due to fact that Chaucer modifies his sources (the preceding ‘auctoritees’/authors) to introduce a literary-critical element into a text whose ambiguities and tensions could otherwise be too-neatly resolved by the Christian ethic.”

“Al that which chargeth nought to seye”: The Theme of Incest in Troilus and Criseyde
“What is not said here has long been a site of dispute amongst Chaucer scholars: some–including E. Talbot Donaldson, George Kane, Beryl Rowland, Haldeen Braddy, Ian Robinson, David Sims, and T. W. Ross–have intimated or asserted outright that the passage suggests that Pandarus and Criseyde engage in an incestuous relationship; others, including no less an authority than the Riverside Chaucer, adamantly deny such a relationship. The Riverside, for example, calls this notion “baseless and absurd” and admonishes that “all too much has been written about [the passage’s] `suggestiveness”‘–although without noting either where all of this has been written or why it should not have been.”
