Testament Of Cresseid, The

Testament Of Cresseid, The

alas this day! alas this woeful tide When I began to quarrel with my gods!' Cresseid. In a bleak midwinter, a wise man stops to recount the haunting story of a woman's battle with her own destiny. a lyrical lament on what might have been and a cautionary tale on longing, love and loss and the dangers of reasoning with the divine.

English translation by Elizabeth Elliott. Adapted for the stage by David Levin. Adapted from Robert Henryson A distinctive Scottish voice in northern renaissance literature At A time when society was on the cusp between medieval And renaissance sensibilities. His 15th Century Testament of Cresseid sets out to complete the story of Cresseid left unfinished in Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus And Criseyde.
