This study contributes to a growing literature on the impact of medieval perceptual theory upon contemporary cultural forms by examining the way late medieval accounts of perception and cognition can illuminate the construction of the subject in Chaucer's long romance, Troilus and Criseyde. The study also demonstrates the degree to which medieval perceptual theory can cast light on one of the most controversial figures in medieval literature, Chaucer's Criseyde, whose black visual figure serves as the central focus of my reading of the work. By situating my reading of the poem's subjects within the historical context of medieval psychological theory I hope to offer a better grounded and thus more illuminating view of them than has heretofore been offered by psychological approaches based on modern constructions of intentionality.
