I got this for the chapter on 'The Testament of Cresseid'. It's a useful analysis of the poem, teasing out the subtleties of Henryson's stance on her. It's easy to read, too, not a chore to read -- which, unfortunately, academic writing all too often is. It made me curious about the rest of Henryson's work, too. Might have to acquaint myself with that, if there's a decent translation or a version with a good glossary.
