Marston attempted, in his first satiric comedies, to apply the same principles in his own way. And Shakespeare in Troilus and Cressida made his one thorough experiment with the type.

Modern critics are prone to use the word "satire" to designate any work of literature which harbors a considerable spirit. Troilus and Cressida by William Shakespeare. William Shakespeare's Trolius and Cressida, is widely considered one of just three works that are true "problem plays.".

Along with two other works, these plays are characterized by their shifting tone, moving between extremely dark drama and much lighter comic material.

Troilus and Cressida, that most vexing and ambiguous of Shakespeare’s plays, strikes the modern reader as a contemporary document——its investigation of numerous infidelities, its criticism of tragic pretensions, above all, its implicit debate between what is essential in human life and what is only existential are themes of the twentieth century.
