A theme that Geoffrey Chaucer develops through these two excerpts is that of treachery, since both King Peter of Spain and King Peter of Cyprus were betrayed and their lives ended tragically. King Peter of Spain was betrayed by a man named Bertrand, who had agreed to protect him in exchange for a great compensation, but who eventually handed him over to his half-brother, Henry, who promised him an even greater reward and who assassinated Peter in his tent in 1369, becoming the new king. This is narrated in the excerpt, where Bertrand is compared not with Oliver of Charlemagne, friend of Charlemagne, but with the knight that betrayed him ("No, Oliver of Charlemagne... such a trap!").
Peter I of Cyprus devoting his short yet intense life to fight Islam, and he led the short yet devastating Alexandrian Crusade, but his life ended abruptly. Betrayed by his wife and by some of his closer knights, he was assassinated in his bed also in 1369. This is also referred in the poem ("That conquered Alexandria... on thy bed!").
To sum up, both excerpts revolve around this theme, which they present very similarly: after emphasizing the deeds of the two historical characters, they finalize by regretting their tragic endings.
Check below for the answer and explanation.
The author, in these two excerpts, describes the consequence of sin and disobedience to the creator. Lucifer and Adam utterly fell from grace and the positions of honor that they were despite the uniqueness that surrounded their existences. This is as a result of their acts of unfaithfulness and insubordination unto God.
In both excerpts, the author describes Lucifer and Adam as specially and uniquely made. Concerning Lucifer, he said, " ...O Lucifer, brightest of angels all". He describes Adam as "...made by God's own finger, And not begotten of man's unclean seed", "...and had power at need Over all Paradise".
The author goes further to explain how great the punishments of their disobedience unto God were. Lucifer fell into hell and became Satan. "... yet he fell though sin Down into hell, and he is yet therein". He describes Lucifer's misery as perpetual, the one he will never escape from. "Now thou art Satan, and canst never win Out of thy miseries; how great thy fall!" Adam also fell from the position of high esteem that he was placed and was driven out of his beautiful abode, Eden. This is because he disobeyed the decree of the creator, similar to the act of Lucifer. " Than he None ever on earth stood higher, till his deed Drove him to labour, Hell and misery."
The author develops the theme of disobedience in both excerpts. In the first one, the author develops the theme by describing how Lucifer "fell through sin." The fact that Lucifer did not respect the laws of Gods caused him to be condemned to Hell.
In the second passage, the author develops this theme by explaining that Adam disobeyed God by eating from the forbidden tree. In the same way Lucifer was sent to Hell, Adam was similarly placed in Hell.
