    Description: Titus Andronicus was the young Shakespeare's audacious, sporadically brilliant experiment in sensational tragedy. Its horrors are notorious, but its powerful poetry of grief is the work of a true tragic poet. Introducing this edition, E. M. Waith provides a fresh view of the play in its historical context as well as an original discussion of the famous ` Peacham' drawing - the only surviving contemporary Shakespeare illustration. An illustrated account of performances, notably Peter Brook's production with Oliver as Titus, leads to an assessment of the play's qualities in the light of its critical reception. The eighteenth-century version of the play's probable source is given in one of the appendices. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Titus Andronicus


Category: Books
Description: His extraordinarily gory and spectacularly violent revenge tragedy, William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus is edited by Sonia Massai, with an introduction by Jacques Berthoud in Penguin Shakespeare.' Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand' Rome is in turmoil. With the Emperor dead, his two sons, Saturninus and Bassianus, quarrel over who should succeed him; but neither are as popular as the general Titus Andronicus, returned to Rome victorious after a ten-year campaign, with Tamora, Queen of the Goths, and her three sons as his prisoners. Eschewing the throne, he endorses Saturninus as successor, and sacrifices the Queen's son Alarbus in memory of his own, lost in the war. But when the new emperor spurns Titus's amity and chooses Tamora for his wife, she quickly begins to plot a murderous revenge of barely conceivable cruelty. This book contains a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and 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. If you enjoyed Titus Andronicus, you might like Macbeth, also available in Penguin Shakespeare.' This is tragedy naked, godless and unredeemed' Kenneth Tynan

Tragedies Volume 2


Category: Books
Description: Volume 1 of the new Everyman Shakespeare, published in 1992, included the four major tragedies: HAMLET, KING LEAR, OTHELLO and MACBETH. Volume 2 completes the survey of Shakespeare's tragic output with ROMEO AND JULIET, JULIUS CAESAR, ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA, CORIOLANUS, TROILUS AND CRESSIDA and TITUS ANDRONICUS. The authoritatively edited texts of the plays are supplemented with extensive bibliographies, a chronology of Shakespear's life and times and a substantial introduction in which Prosessor Tony Tanner examines Shakespeare's evolution as a tragedian while also providing detailed discussions of the individual plays. This is the only two-volume edition of the tragedies with such comprehensive apparatus and it will eventually form part of a complete Shakespeare (plays and poems) in eight volumes.
