ABSTRACT
An essay is presented about the play "Troilus and Cressida" written by William Shakespeare. It states that the play encompasses normal expectations for an interconnected sequence and for causal assumptions and developments of characters, even for an obvious limitation between audience and play or between creating and created play. It says that the play ends with an epilogue that pronounces a corrosive judgment on all the audience has seen, where the audience is included in that judgment.
