Troilus and Cressida Act 5, Scene 9 Summary

  • A bunch of soldiers announce to the Greek leaders that Achilles has killed the Trojan Hector.
  • Ajax says that Hector was a "good" man and that his death should be "bragless." (Read: Achilles and the rest of the Greeks shouldn't be bragging about it. Whoops. Too late.)
  • Agamemnon says if Hector's dead, then Troy is totally about to fall.
