    When I was young and naive, I loved Troilus and Cressida for its brave cynicism, but now that I am older and my outlook is bleaker I appreciate it for its realism and compassion Shakespeare shows us a world in which lovers yearn to be true and warriors strive to be brave, but both inevitably fail, betrayed by human nature and the adventitious provocations of time Here, as in Romeo and Juliet, passion and violence are inextricably linked Inde...

    So a lot of people seem to think this is really boring and difficult I ll give them the second one, but boring This tale of a tangential romance if you can call it that to the Trojan War is rife with all kinds of awesome feats du language oh yeah, I wrote that and lots of tiny but cool moments, as various celebrated heroes find themselves unable to escape the narratives we know them for, despite their and Shakespeare s best efforts From the rather peaceful, almost wistful beginning to So a lot of people seem to think this is really boring and difficult I ll give them the second one, but boring This tale of a tangential romance if you can call it that to the Trojan War is rife with all kinds of awesome feats du language oh yeah, I wrote that and lots of tiny but cool moments, as various celebrated heroes find themselves unable to escape the narratives we know them for, despite their and Shakespeare s best efforts From the rather peaceful, almost wistful beginning to...

    Troilus and Cressida is an underrated Shakespeare play based on the Iliad It s not really a tragedy and not quite a comedy, but it seems to me that Shakespeare strikes a good blend Troilus and Cressida are minor characters in the saga but Shakespeare draws their characters well and the reader becomesinvested in their storythan the multitude of other characters drawn from the Iliad Many of these characters are intentionally drawn superficially because there is little time in the sp Troilus and Cressida is an underrated Shak...

    Shakespeare s farcical take on the Iliad22 May 2012 This is one of Shakespeare s stranger plays, and though the characters of the title do play a role in the play albeit it is a quite minor one The play is set during the Trojan War and basically follows the plot of the Iliad, though Shakespeare adds some quite comic twists to the main characters Troilus and Cressida are two Trojans who are in love, but Cressida is given over to the Greeks in exchange for ...

    A landmark for me In this Year of Reading All the Shakespeare, this play, the twenty first in the list, is the first one that I d never read before and really enjoyed To me, Titus Andronicus was a pointless gorefest, The Two Gentlemen of Verona was just dumb, and King Edward III was simply incoherent, but this well, it s not great not a Hamlet or Macbeth or Richard II but it s very good While I m quite familiar with The Iliad, the story of Troilus and Cressida was new to me Aside fro A landmark for me In this Year of Reading All the Shakespeare, this play, the twenty first in the list, is the first one that I d never read before and really enjoyed To me, Titus Andronicus was a pointless gorefest, The Two Gentlemen of Verona was just dumb, and King Edward III was simply incoherent, but this well, it s not great not a Hamlet or Macbeth or Richard II but it s very good While I m quite familiar with The Iliad, the story of Troilus and Cressida was new to me Aside from knowing that they were famous sundered lovers, ...

    This is the funniest thing I have read in a long time Shakespeare brilliantly turns Homer s tragic idealism into nihilistic realism I love every scene that includes Achilles or Thersites.

    3.3 this play is drenched in regret, betrayal, villainy and the frailty of mankind as opposed to the forces of fate it s cruel, yet stiflingly lewd and irreverent at times the boundaries of comedy and tragedy blend and intertwine constantly chivalry and ridicule stand side by side there is always a sense of greatness traces of truth ...
