In Ancient Greece and Rome, the Cycle of Troy was tiptoed as an essential compilation of information and educational models which was a vivid testimony throughout the history of Greek and Roman influence.

Yet in the middle Ages, Trojan myths as long as other characters like Hercules or Jason were transformed into models of human behaviour, i. e., suffering from the process of moralization. We say Moralitee to point out how Geoffrey Chaucer recreates those myths.

Although we will extensively discuss how Chaucer recreates the Trojan myths in his works, we can anticipate what the reader will find. Chaucer manipulates his material from a multifold point of view: first of all, Chaucer was a man of his times, an unquiet mind and personality that always plays different games with that material. We might consider heroic the fact that Chaucer would pour out on his work the great background that the European writers (mainly Boccaccio, Dante, and Petrarch) supplied him (we will remember how difficult to collect information was in a period of vast lack of what we might call media).

Come what may, he projects his wisdom to tick on the most surmounting aspects of the formal characterization of the myths, and integrates them into the proper contexts of his works, as one of the key forces that the audience is expected to revive with the knowledge that it is supposed to own.
