Geoffrey Chaucer's use of material found in the works of the Roman poet Ovid has long been a popular subject for critics of medieval literature. Most of the recent criticism concerning Chaucer's use of Ovidian materials focuses, not surprisingly, on Troilus and Criseyde and the material drawn from Ovid's Des Amores and Heroides. Ovid's Metamorphoses, however, has been overlooked. This neglect of such a well-known pre-medieval text has left a wide arena open for criticism.
