    Excerpt from Poetical Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, Vol. 2: Edited With a Memoir

    Of Chaucer's heroic and comic styles we have already had examples in the three first tales in this exquisitely touching picture of resignation, founded upon Christian faith and hope, he displays his powers of pathos. The pervading idea is that virtue is not to expect or seek its recompence in earthly happiness. Constance, that nobil creature,' is m fact too good to receive her reward in this world, which 18 therefore only the scene of her warfare and purification. The tone of mind produced by the perusal of the poem is one of awe and sober elevation, an efiect like that of Longfellow's kindred story of Evangeline, which is marred, however, by his unfortunate choice of the (so-called) hexameter verse. The metre selected by Chaucer is, on the contrary, well adapted to a pathetic subject. It was apparently first used by him in English poetry, and was taken, no doubt, from the Italian ottava' rima, which it resembles in cadence, but from which it differs in wanting the fifth line to rhyme with the first and third.
