Troilus and Cressida
I thought that this play was interesting because of the unique window of time that in choose in presenting the greek and trojan war. It seems ironic that the love story this play choose to take on was that of Troilus and Cressida when the far more famous relationship was between Helen of Troy and Paris. Paris loved Helen so much that he had no choice but to steal her from her husband, Menalaus, and bring her to Troy - it was this love story that started the war. Paris would do anything to keep Helen from going to Greek hands. Yet Troilus gives away Cressida to the Greeks without a fight. It seems very ironic to me that the older brother will start a war over a woman, and the younger pretends as though he wil always be with Cressida and then when an obstacle gets in his way, he gives up and gives her to the Greeks.
