Quick Overview

Cambridge Troilus and Cressida

Troilus and Cressida long considered one of Shakespeare's most problematic plays is both difficult and fascinating. Largely neglected during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries it has recently proved popular and rewarding on the stage as well as in the study. This edition questions certain received ideas about the play's text especially the relationship between quarto and folio and offers several new readings of old problems. Dawson's textual choices are often surprising but at the same time carefully grounded. He views the play from a performance perspective - both in the commentary as well as in the detailed section on stage history in the introduction. The introduction also covers the cultural context in which the play was written probes the controversy about its early performance and provides extensive analysis of character language genre and contemporary significance.
