Comment: Re: SHK 13.1030 Re: 1981 Cressida
I am always glad to see a discussion of Cressida, about whom I enjoy
puzzling and supposing.
It's been a lot of years since I read Joseph Papp's introduction in _The
Festival Shakespeare Troilus and Cressida_, and though I visited it
again in September 1998 while re-reading the play (I posted some
commentary on Usenet at
ttp://groups.google.com/groupshl=en&th=a97471fb5c03094e&rnum=1), I was
focused more on the vowing and parting scenes. (Not that my comments
hold great value, but I quoted Papp somewhat, so you can get a feel for
his point of view.)
I see several used copies listed in Bookfinder.com,
or you may try your library or Interlibrary Loan. It was published in
1967, so of course there are no "modern" productions referenced, and
certainly not the 1981 one to which you referred.
