Sangue e orrore senechiani, ma, a differenza di Seneca, non raccontati dal Coro e dai personaggi, ma rappresentati clamorosamente sulla scena; sensuale liricità ovidiana, ma, a differenza di Ovidio, non trasmessa da una voce narrante, bensì innestata negli scambi drammatici: in questa ardua commistione, e trasformazione, di modi teatrali e letterari sta forse la principale scommessa ideativa del giovane Shakespeare nel Tito Andronico. Elementare, ma straordinariamente efficace, la dinamica d’azione: danno subìto, escogitazione dei modi della vendetta, esecuzione del piano in un’ecatombe finale.

Literally years after people began suggesting that I do this, I finally got around to reading the damn play. So in the words of Bette Davis: fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night. Because here's TITUS ANDRONICUS, ABRIDGED: TITUS: Man, it's great to be me! I'm an awesome general, all m Leggi tutto
Like A Comedy of Errors , Titus Andronicus is part of a grammar-school-educated Shakespeare's crash-course substitute for a university education. In Errors , he imitated Plautine comedy's plot structure and stock characters, and--in an experiment to see just how much fun the form could hold--doubled t Leggi tutto

I would be incredibly surprised if I read a play worse than Titus Andronicus in this challenge. Titus was Shakespeare’s first attempt at staging a classical tragedy – something which he will eventually go on to get so right in works such as Julius Caesar. The basic plot follows a Roman general (our Leggi tutto
Pulp fiction for the 1600s, Quentin Tarantino in lace collar and puffy pants. If anyone thinks that Shakespeare is dry and timid, flowery and antiquated, they need to see this, but beware: this is a bloody mess. One critic, complaining that it was such a caricature that only Mel Brooks should direct, Leggi tutto
Wherein Shakespeare beats Quentin Tarantino at being Quentin Tarantino.
I saw this at Shakespeare’s Globe in London last summer, and was absolutely amazed at the brutal brilliance of the production. The actor who played Titus was superb; he captured Titus’s decent into madness perfectly by evoking a character that started out as strong and fearless to one who ended up u Leggi tutto
My favorite of the lesser-known works, this has got more outright horror than most contemporary slasher novels. Sure, the rhetoric is a bit stilted and Shakespeare borrows heavily from Ovid, but it's a fascinating study of the bottomless pit that people can find themselves in once they succumb to th Leggi tutto

BEST. REVENGE. STORY. EVER. PERIOD. The only piece of advice I can give is: Prepare yourself, you are about to enter into a world that knows no bounds when it comes to the old saying "enough is enough."
