Title : The Falcon’s Complaint in the Squire’s Tale [In its form and content, the falcon’s lament departs from the traditional poetic genre of the complaint. The poetic structure (including rhyme and meter) of this passage differs from other poems in the complaint genre, and the passage serves a narrative function as well as a lyric one.

Although hawks and falcons could hold many different meanings to medieval writers, Marie draws upon courtly conventions that compare the knight and lover to a hawk pursuing his prey. In her poem, she reverses the predatory imagery associated with hawks by making the knight (who transfomrs into a hawk) a symbol of faithful love and self-sacrafice. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
