Titus Andronicus - Penguin


An embittered Roman general returns from war, having captured the Queen of the Goths and her three sons.  Sacrificing the eldest, in memory of his own sons killed in battle, he provokes the queen's unending hatred.  And when she gains power by marriage to the new emperor of Rome, she quickly begins to plot a murderous revenge of barely conceivable cruelty.


This book includes a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and the Elizabethan theatre, a separate introduction to Titus Andronicus, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, an essay discussing performance options on both stage and screen, and a commentary.


Paperback edition. 182 pages.
