Troilus and Cressida (Oxford Shakespeare)

Troilus and Cressida (Oxford Shakespeare) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Given the wealth of formal debate contained in this tragedy, Troilus and Cressida was probably written in 1602 for a performance at one of the Inns of the Court. Shakespeare's treatment of the age-old tale of love and betrayal is based on many sources, from Homer and Ovid to Chaucer and Shakespeare's near contemporary Robert Greene. In the introduction the various problems connected with the play, its performance, and publication, are considered succinctly; its multiple sources are discussed in detail, together with its peculiar stage history and its renewed popularity in recent years.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 41-46) and index.
