30 October 2007 Professor B.G. Harding ENG 3542-001 Critical Response 4 Criseyde has given meeting and “yielding” to Troilus much thought through her meditations on the pros and cons of love in Book 2. Criseyde has “yielded” to Troilus and helped to produce their meeting just as much as he has. Like a field yields crops, so has Criseyde helped to yield to the relationship with Troilus. Criseyde pondered about how men often love women when the women do not return their love, but she still agrees to give her love to Troilus. Thus, Book 3 is a book that explores the relationship further of Troilus and Criseyde and this is even framed by Chaucer addressing the book to Venus the Goddess of love in the beginning. Criseyde points out to her uncle Pandarus, "Now wel," quod she, "and I wol doon my peyne; / I shal myn herte ayeins my lust constreyne. / "But that I nyl nat holden hym in honde, / Ne love a man ne kan I naught ne may / Ayeins my wyl, but elles wol I fonde, / Myn honour sauf, plese hym fro day to day” (476-480).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
