I would think the "one in ten" is a reference to the Biblical story 
(Luke 17:11-19) of Jesus' healing of ten lepers, of whom only one 
returned to thank him.

Arnie:

One possible reason for the clown's riddle is that Helena may be no 
Helen. In other words, what if Helena is rather plain looking and thus 
hardly the kind of face "that launched a thousand ships"?  Of course, 
there are many other possibilities, but I find this an interesting one.

 >Finally, does Troilus And Cressida fit anywhere in this picture?

Drop whatever you're doing, and search the university libraries in your 
area until you find a copy of Charles Williams' "The English Poetic 
Mind", in which he argues that "Troilus and Cressida" is, in fact, the 
keystone of the arch you are looking for.
