William Shakespeare's Works/Comedies/Troilus and Cressida

Troilus and Cressida is a comedy by William Shakespeare, written in 1602. This play is a retelling of the Grecian myth of the Trojan War, with a subplot about the romance of the two titular characters. The play is somewhat of an anomaly in the works of Shakespeare, as it contains elements of tragedy, history and comedy. It appears to constantly tread a line between broad, slapstick-style comedy and terrible tragedy.
