Qxd 4/16/02 4:42 PM Page 21 Women and Betrayal 21 not, after all, so odd, since – as everyone says – she is the most beautiful woman in Troy. It would be a mistake to interpret this last reflection as revealing vanity in Criseyde; an outstandingly beautiful woman can hardly be unaware of her own beauty, although social decorum obliges her to conceal her knowledge, as Criseyde recognises (‘Al wolde I that noon wiste of this thought’: II 745). Criseyde’s private awareness of her own beauty escapes being vanity precisely because the vigilant supervision of her more public self brings it under scrutiny and control.
And yet, having shown us Criseyde’s change of heart as a slow process of incremental adjustment, in the very next stanza Chaucer re-presents it with a brutal abruptness of style that becomes a characterisation of the deed itself: The morwen com, and gostly for to speke, This Diomede is come unto Criseyde; And shortly, lest that ye my tale breke, So wel he for hymselven spak and seyde That alle hire sikes soore adown he leyde; And finaly, the sothe for to seyne, He refte hire of the grete of al hire peyne.
Foryeveth it me, and that I yow biseche. The wise Plato seith, as ye may rede, The word moot nede accorde with the dede. If men shal telle proprely a thyng, The word moot cosyn be to the werkyng. I am a boystous man, right thus seye I: Ther nys no difference, trewely, Bitwixe a wyf that is of heigh degree, If of hir body dishonest she bee, And a povre wenche, oother than this – If it so be they werke bothe amys – But that the gentile, in estaat above, She shal be cleped his lady, as in love; And for that oother is a povre womman, She shal be cleped his wenche or his lemman.
