A volume in The New Cambridge Shakespeare, newly edited to the meticulous standard for which this series has become known, this edition of Titus Andronicus includes an extensive introduction that leads the reader through the full spectrum of contemporary criticism of the play, major modern productions, and its performance history. Appendices explore how the play might have been performed at the Rose playhouse, which has been recently excavated, and how it could have been adapted for a touring company of fourteen men and boys.

Opponents of Titus Andronicus have abhorred its apparently gratuitous violence and uneven verse. Alan Hughes takes the play seriously, arguing for its unity of theme and its grim humour. His account of criticism and stage productions shows that Titus is the work of a brilliant stage craftsman.From AudioFile:
Shakespeare's first Roman play rivals GLADIATOR in gore. It features a steady parade of violence, revenge, rape, mutilation, and even cannibalism. The tragedy of two feuding families may be best enjoyed as an action-packed melodrama, which is how director Clive Brill smartly interprets it. This wonderful performance ranks with the best recorded Shakespeare. Thrilling organ chords underscore moments of tension and nicely supplement the atmospheric music by Dominique Le Gendre. The entire cast performs their larger-than-life roles with a grandness that never becomes hammy. Their sharp diction is also a continual pleasure. The villains are the most fun, especially Harriet Walter, whose Tamara is deliciously guileful. G.H.
