Throughout Titus, Shakespeare pushes at the boundaries between true expression and false, sanity and madness, speech and silence.

The actor on the Elizabethan stage communicated with his audience in two ways: through words and gestures.

Titus Andronicus is the earliest tragedy and the earliest Roman play attributed to Shakespeare. Titus, a model Roman, has led twenty-one of his twenty-five sons to death in Rome’s wars; he stabs another son to death for what he views as disloyalty to Rome. Yet Rome has become “a wilderness of tigers.” After a death sentence is imposed on two of his three remaining sons, and his daughter is raped and mutilated, Titus turns his loyalty toward his family. Aaron the Moor, a magnificent villain and the empress’s secret lover, makes a similar transition. After the empress bears him a child, Aaron devotes himself to preserving the baby. Retaining his thirst for evil, he shows great tenderness to his little family—a tenderness that also characterizes Titus before the terrifying conclusion.

Comments to eBook Titus Andronicus (Folger Shakespeare Library)

A lot of people consider this Shakespeare's worst play. Much of that has to do with it apparently being less developed and the language less fluid/poetic as his other works. But I am not well versed in his writing enough to see these issues. I absolutely loved it. It is bloody and horrific, enough to give Stephen King a run for his money. But it is interesting and it is the easiest story of the playwrights to follow along with out of those I have read (which may result from the lacking quality that makes some label this his worst play). But I found the characters terrifying and impossible to look away from. I had to read this play since my acting teacher was making me perform one of Tamora's monologues in class.From an acting standpoint this story is amazing. There is so much to grab on to and play with. The characters are disgusting but as an actor that is so much more fun. You can really get into the people, their motives and their way of life. Also the movie version starring Jessica Lange and Anthony Hopkins is amazing! If you enjoy the play it is a great watch.

Say what you will about the graphic nature of the plot, the early seeds of Shakespeare’s genius are certainly down in this play. Arguably better than Romeo and Juliette in my opinion, Titus, though Shakespeare’s first tragedy, is more shocking as the play unfolds. It leaves the reader divided between who the truly abused party is, and who is more morally in the right. It might seem like gore for gore’s sake, but I would argue that any revenge tragedy aimed at moving an audience—as Hamlet would put it: “make mad the guilty, and appaul the free”—should be able to produce an effect, even if it requires bloody ascetics.

Classic Shakespeare play.

During Elizabethan times, "Revenge" plays were very popular. While "revenge" type plots were common on past television anthologies such as "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," it was an entirely different genre than what I am used to reading. I found it worth the read.
I ordered this book for my son, who is taking British Literature. Although, I had taken a course on Shakespeare in college, I had never read this book before.
