Titus Andronicus: The Oxford Shakespeare Paperback / softback

Edited by Eugene M. (Professor Emeritus, Department of English, Professor Emeritus, Department of Engli Waith

Part of the Oxford World's Classics series

Paperback / softback

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 theappendices.
