This process of rearrangement can be seen in all its subtlety of detail in Chaucer’s account of Criseyde’s private thoughts when Pandarus has left her and she sits down to reflect on the ‘newe cas’. She has barely got beyond reassuring herself that no woman is obliged to love a man however passionately he is in love with her (II 603–9), when she is distracted by shouts outside hailing Troilus’s return from the battlefield. Watching this young hero ride by, she sees him with new eyes in the light of Pandarus’s revelation, and blushes with consciousness of the thought that this is the man whose life, according to Pandarus, depends on her mercy.
F 1–16) The comfortable blandness of Chaucer’s assurances here is reminiscent of the contented credulity with which he refuses the Eagle’s offer to show him the stars in the House of Fame; the good-humoured irony becomes even more apparent as he goes on to claim for the writer the poetic equivalent of a licence to print money. Than mote we to bokes that we fynde, Thurgh whiche that olde thinges ben in mynde, And to the doctrine of these olde wyse Yeve credence, in every skylful wise, That tellen of these olde appreved stories Of holynesse, of regnes, of victories, Of love, of hate, of other sondry thynges, Of whiche I may not maken rehersynges.
When in Book III Criseyde exclaims, in response to Pandarus’s trumpedup story of Troilus’s jealousy, ‘Horaste! ’ (806), the idea of her being unfaithful to Troilus is as unthinkable to us as it is to her. The character of betrayer is one with which events invest her, not one we are persuaded is hers from the beginning, whether by virtue of her sex or by virtue of her individual character. The final moment when Criseyde visualizes her own entrapment within the bounds of this stereotyped character thus reveals to us the full extent of the living indeterminacy which Chaucer has recuperated from its unpromising outline.
