Troilus and Cressida A Tragedy

"I feel that I have spent half my career with one or another Pelican Shakespeare in my back pocket. Convenience, however, is the least important aspect of the new Pelican Shakespeare series. Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller who understand that these are plays for performance as well as great texts for contemplation." (Patrick Stewart) The distinguished Pelican Shakespeare series, which has sold more than four million copies, is now completely revised and repackaged. Each volume features: * Authoritative, reliable texts * High quality introductions and notes * New, more readable trade trim size * An essay on the theatrical world of Shakespeare and essays on Shakespeare's life and the selection of texts.

  • "Madly in love with Cressida, Trojan prince Troilus is heartbroken when she is traded to the Greeks in a prisoner exchange. Amidst the turmoil of the two lovers, the Greece and Troy remain at war with Agamemnon, the king of the Greeks, and Priam, the king of Troy, at their respective helms. Shakespeare's most experimental and undefinable play, Troilus and Cressida's interweaving plots tell various stories of the Trojan War.Known as "The Bard of Avon," William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare's works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare's innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Inside the city Troilus, the Trojan King's son, falls in love with Cressida, whose father has defected to the Greek camp. In an exchange of prisoners the couple are split - they believe forever.

  • "While sometimes regarded as a dark comedy today, Shakespeare listed his Troilus and Cressida as a tragedy in his First Folio of 1623. Commonly referred to as one of Shakespeare's "problem plays," Troilus and Cressida contains elements of racy comedy and tragic gloom, making it hard for readers and viewers to identify with the characters' experiences. Featuring characters of Greek and Roman lore, the drama follows the love affair of the title characters amidst an ongoing struggle between the Greeks and the Trojans."@en
