Title : The Daisy and the Laurel: Myths of Desire and Creativity in the Poetry of John Froissart [Froissart’s poetic persona fuses the identities of the cleric and the lover, and thus his poetry is both learned and secular. He adapts Ovidian myths (particularly those focusing on Apollo, a figure of both poetry and wisdom) to construct a mythographic basis for his intellectualized poetic identity and love psychology. At the same time, he adapts numerous mythic allusions to transform the daisy into a symbol of erotic desire, loss, and memory. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Mythological Lovers in Chaucer's "Trolius and Criseyde" [Chaucer makes many allusions to well-known figures from classical mythology in this poem, and medieval readers were familiar with the meanings of these references. For instance, when Chaucer's fickle Criseyde mentions Oenone (a female figure from Ovid's "Heroides"), medieval readers would have been reminded of medieval glosses of the "Heroides" that interpret Oenone as exemplum of foolish love. Allusions to other mythological lovers like Tereus and Procne, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Myrrha similarly serve as exampla for love as a disastrous and socially destructive force.
