Troylus and Cresida (facs. 1st Folio 1623)

Troilus and Cressida sits uneasily somewhere between comedy and tragedy. The tale of young lovers, set against the backdrop of the Trojan War is often driven by satire and humor, but the play’s end is unsettlingly dark. This is a facsimile edition of the play from the First Folio edition of 1623.
