Comments for the name Cressida

Comments for CRESSIDA:

When doing Chaucer's poem in a literature class, my professor - who is somewhat of an authority on medieval dialects, and has recorded several readings of such poems - referred to Chaucer's version of the character (Criseyde) as something like kreh-SAY-deh, while Shakespeare's was KREH-sih-dah.
