Abstract :Under the influence of feminism criticism, sympathy toward Cressida has increased. However, the traditional view that Troilus is true and Cressida is false still remains. Since Cressida's betrayal of Troilus is performed in the full view of the audience, it is a fact which cannot be denied. Unlike Cressida, Troilus never loves any woman other than her. In this light the traditional view seems to be right. However, if to be true to someone means to be like a merchant who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it, Troilus' truth becomes questionable. For he puts his reputation before his love when he is required to offer Cressida in exchange for Antenor. Troilus and Cressida is not a drama about a true man and a false woman. Rather, it is a drama about a weak woman who cannot resist to be tempted by a gallant and a man who cannot become a first rate merchant. Incongruity between if. . .another and let. . .panders in Pandarus lines in Act three Scene two when Troilus and Cressida are preparing to go off to consummate their relationship makes us question the traditional view about Troilus and Cressida.
