The invocations of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde have a direct relationship with classical mythology and medieval mythography. Each individual or group of deities is invoked as a method of foreshadowing the action of Troilus and Criseyde. Mars's affair with Venus and Venus's own destructive nature correlate with the love affair of Troilus and Criseyde. Both the Muses and the Furies foreshadow the ultimate death of Troilus as a result of his offenses of the gods.
