William Shakespeare

The History of Troilus and Cressida

Troilus and Cressida is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1602. The play (also described as one of Shakespeare's problem plays) is not a conventional tragedy, since its protagonist (Troilus) does not die. The play ends instead on a very bleak note with the death of the noble Trojan Hector and destruction of the love between Troilus and Cressida. Throughout the play, the tone lurches wildly between bawdy comedy and tragic gloom, and readers and theatre-goers have frequently found it difficult to understand how one is meant to respond to the characters.

    Count wisdom as no member of the war,
    Forestall prescience, and esteem no act
    But that of hand

    Troy in our weakness stands, not in her strength.

    But still sweet love is food for fortune's tooth.
