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.

Seemingly the most fantastical of television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer proves on close examination to be firmly rooted in real-world concerns. In this collection of critical essays, 15 authors from several disciplines, including literature, the visual arts, theatre, philosophy, and political science, study ways in which Buffy illuminates viewers’ real-life experiences. Topics include the series’ complicated portrayals of the relationship between soul, morality, and identity; whether Buffy can truly be described as a feminist icon; stereotypes of Native Americans in the episode “Pangs”; the role of signs in the interaction between Buffy’s aesthetics and audience; and the problem of power and underhanded politics in the Buffy universe.

Originally published in 1995. In three parts – introduction, criticism and reviews – this volume examines the goriest of Shakespeare’s works. The editor’s exhaustive introduction runs through the pattern of changing scholarship and commentary, introducing the key interests in the play, from its authorship to its language, rhetoric and performance. Early commentaries focused on arguing about whether the play was truly Shakespeare’s. A selection of the most important of these are included here followed by later investigations looking at myriad topics and characters – revenge, violence, race, Aaron, women, tragedy and Tamora. The large section of reviews of stage performances, arranged chronologically, ranges from 1857 to 1990. Two final pieces interestingly survey stage history of Titus in Japan and in Germany.

Fifteen outstanding scholars of theater, music, art, and literature explore the interrelations of eighteenth-century British theater and the various art forms that it incorporated into itself. The essays examine the theater's increasing reliance on set designers, costumers, musicians and composers, poets, dramatists, and librettists, focusing on the ways in which this dependence fundamentally changed the theater. Illustrated.

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.

Der Winter 1595 ist kalt. Das macht auch den Mitgliedern der Theatertruppe von William Shakespeare zu schaffen, einer von vielen in London. Die Stadt ist seit längerem vom Theaterfieber ergriffen, neu entstandene Schauspielhäuser vor den Toren der Stadt fassen Tausende Zuschauer, die sich mit Bühnenstücken, Tanz, Zoten und dressierten Bären unterhalten lassen. Halbseidenes Gesindel sind diese Schauspieler in den Augen der puritanischen Obrigkeit, die alle Bühnen verbieten will. Aber viele im Hochadel lieben das Theater, und auch die Königin tut es. Zur Hochzeit einer hochgestellten Dame soll die Truppe ein neues Stück auf die Bühne bringen, eine Komödie mit dem Titel «Der Sommernachtstraum». Mit von der Partie: Richard, William Shakespeares jüngerer Bruder, vom Älteren wenig geliebt und auf der Bühne nur in Frauenrollen geduldet. Dann geschieht eine Katastrophe: Ein konkurrierendes Schauspielhaus lässt das Stück stehlen. Aber Richard weiß, wie die Uraufführung zu retten ist. Er wird das Stück zurückstehlen und damit William dazu bringen, ihn endlich zu respektieren, ihm endlich eine Männerrolle zu geben – und dann fehlt ihm zu seinem Glück nur noch die Hand der schönen Silvia ... Ein ungeheuer spannender und farbiger historischer Roman über Eifersucht, Verrat, Liebe und die Kunst, wie ihn nur Bernard Cornwell schreiben kann.
