Better than some better known plays of Shakespeare. Troilus & Cressida themselves just might be the least interesting aspect of this play.

I liked everything else about the story. Particularly the portrayal of Achilles as the selfish, arrogant brute, Ajax as the dumb brute and Ulysses as the manipulative, unscrupulous military advisor.

Interesting/5(27). In the seventh year of the Trojan War, a Trojan prince named Troilus falls in love with Cressida, the daughter of a Trojan priest who has defected to the Greek side. Troilus is assisted in his pursuit of her by Pandarus, Cressida's uncle.

The heroine is a wanton. The romance of Troilus and Cressida is derived from pseudo-Homeric medieval sources—and, of course, from Chaucer's great fourteenth-century epic, Troilus and Criseyde. (Shakespeare, true to form, used only the bare bones of these stories for his play, and emphasized the Elizabethan idea of Cressida's falseness over Chaucer's more sympathetic.

To the Bard, the story of the Trojan War was more dubious than inspiring/5(27). Chaucer’s work, like Shakespeare’s after him, had the ability to touch both the common people and nobles at Court; for this reason, courtly romances like Troilus and Criseyde gained popularity among different classes.

Although the story had been told before in France and Italy, Chaucer’s version is slightly less cynical and misogynistic. Set against the epic backdrop of the battle of Troy, Troilus and Criseyde is an evocative story of love and loss.

When Troilus, the son of Priam, falls in love with the beautiful Criseyde, he is able to win her heart with the help of his cunning uncle Pandarus, and the lovers experience a brief period of bliss together/5.

Eminent Shakespearean scholars Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen provide a fresh new edition of this classic tragedy of politics and war, honor and love—along with more than a hundred pages of exclusive features, including: • an original Introduction to Troilus and Cressida• incisive scene-by-scene synopsis and analysis with vital facts about the work• commentary on past and current 4/5(1).

We know this because Shakespeare didn't invent the story of Troilus and Cressida. It was passed down to him from medieval literature, especially Chaucer's famous poem Troilus and Criseyde. This love story was so legendary in Shakespeare's time that "Cressida" was already a name associated with unfaithful women, "Troilus" with fidelity and loyalty, and "Pandarus" with, uh, pimps.

I know readers who claim to prefer this play to Chaucer's "Troilus and Criseyde"--which tells you something either about their inability to read Chaucer or their jaded sense of humor.

Shakespeare's version of the story is every bit as dark and sardonic as Chaucer's is light and satiric/5(5). This is the second Shakespeare's play to have kept me wanting to find out what actually happens.

Arguably this may have resulted from my having read Chaucer's "Troilus", which story cannot be outdone in its emotionless pursuit of intellectual ends, but this "Troilus" of itself is still truly laudable as an instance of Shakespeare's drama having some dramatic quality besides great verse /5(19).
