Part of: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (The Oxford Shakespeare) Troilus and Cressida

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 edition comes from the 1916 Oxford University Press edition of all of Shakespeare’s plays and poems.
