Description

A tragedy of jealousy and betrayal as well as a satire of the consequences of greed and lust, this drama unfolds amid the violent desperation of the Trojan War. After seven years of bloodshed, few illusions remain about the glory of war. The fate of two young lovers Troilus, a Trojan prince, and Cressida, the fickle daughter of a traitorous priest is intertwined with the exploits of Ulysses, Achilles, and other immortal figures of classical mythology.

Based in part on Chaucer's "Troilus and Criseyde, " Shakespeare's work offers a darker and more cynical vision than its predecessor. Comic, tragic, and ironic by turns, the drama shifts between the intimacy of the central romance to the broader perspective of the armies' pointless skirmishes. Frequently regarded as the most modern of Shakespeare's dramas, the play debunks heroic ideals and delivers a powerful statement about the futility of war.
