Title : My Sweete Foo: Emelye’s Role in "The Knight’s Tale" [In this poem, the maiden Emelye acts as a mediator between the knights Palamon and Arcite.

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. It relates the story of the falcon’s betrayal by her male lover and simultaneously expresses her emotional state through a complex series of poetic devices, including metaphors and allusions.

Title : The Knot, the Belt, and the Making of "Guigemar" [Marie de France uses imagery in her lais in order to summarize the structural and thematic concerns of her poems. In “Guigemar,” the knot and the belt (which the lovers exchange as love tokens) and thematic references to forms of enclosure symbolize the thematic unity and circular narrative of the poem; the knot and the belt are also metaphors that refer to Marie’s own role as “maker” or author of intricate narratives.
