McCobb, Lilian M. "The English Partonope of Blois, Its French Source, and Chaucer's Knight's Tale." 11 (1977): 369-72.
Though scholars have suggested that Chaucer borrowed from the Partonope of Blois, careful examination of the manuscript reveals that in the places where the English Partonope sounds like Chaucer, it differs widely from the French Partonope de Blois. The similarity of the variations to Chaucer's work may suggest that the translator worked in a bookshop and therefore probably had access to Chaucer's Knight's Tale.
