Men speak of Job, and for his humblesse,

And clerkes when hem list can well endite,

Namely of men, but as in stedfastnese

Though clerkes preisin women but a lite,

There can no man in humblesse him acquite

As women can, nor can be half so trewe

As women ben.

Chaucer, The Clerke's Tale.

First Edition (2 Vols. Crown 8vo) 1893
