The Folio lists Cymbeline as a tragedy.  I can only conclude that those
who made that decision hadn't read it and thought the title sounded like
a tragedy.

And how would you classify Troilus and Cressida?  The Folio places it
between sections.

Susan St. John asked:

1. Caliban edited it?

2. Miranda did ("Life is a tragedy to those who feel, a comedy to those
who feel")?
