Most of this nondramatic poetry, including a good half of the sonnets, pales in comparison to the plays. Make no mistake: Shakespeare's sonnets are, on the whole, wonderful. But he'd hardly be worshipped as he is on their basis alone. He could do amazing things in fourteen lines, but those confines were too small and too contrived for his gifts. The sonnet form was well suited to the sensibility and tastes of Shakespeare's age; by the same token, his accomplishments there were more for his age than for all time.
Eventually January goes literally blind and grows increasingly jealous and suspicious. But May figures out a way to foil him, even though he literally refuses to ever let go of her hand. I won't spoil the ending for you, except to say that what happens next involves one of January's servants, a pear tree, and an argument between the god Pluto and his wife Proserpina. Chaucer can't claim to have invented the notion that "Love is blind," which traces back at least to Classical Rome. Writers including Plautus, Horace, Ovid, Propertius, and Catullus allude to "blind love," and in medieval art we find many images of little blind Cupid.

According to Chaucer, the god of Love, enraged at his portrait of an immoral, conniving woman, demanded that he compensate by writing The Legend of Good Women.
