內容推薦


  Troilus and Cressida, long considered one of Shakespeare''smost problematic plays, is both difficult and fascinating. Largelyneglected during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries it hasrecently proved popular and rewarding on the stage as well as inthe study. This edition questions certain received ideas aboutthe play''s text, especially the relationship between quarto andfolio and offers several new readings of old problems. Dawson''stextual choices are often surprising but at the same time carefullygrounded. He views the play from a performance perspective - bothin the commentary as well as in the detailed section on stagehistory in the introduction. The introduction also covers thecultural context in which the play was written, probes thecontroversy about its early performance and provides extensiveanalysis of character, language, genre and contemporarysignificance.
