Title : Adfluit incautis insidiosus amor: la precettistica Ovidiana nel "Filostrato" di Boccaccio [Boccaccio's "Filostrato" makes extensive use of Ovid's works, particularly in its account of Troilus and Criseyde.

5. Record Number: 9546
Author(s): Mieszkowski, Gretchen.
Title : Chaucer’s Much Loved Criseyde [Chaucer portrays Criseyde as weak, inconsistent, and lacking selfhood, and this portrayal is in accordance with the Western male’s tendency to define his selfhood in opposition to a non-human female Other. Chaucer alters Criseyde from her literary precursor Criseida (from Boccaccio’s "Filostrato") by increasing Criseyde’s passivity; thus he renders her more pointedly feminine and attractive to male readers (including male literary critics). Title note supplied by Feminae.].
