Titus Andronicus is a tragedy genre and this is clearly represented by the mixture of love, hate and power that grips the reader straight from the opening scene. It was written by Shakespeare in the Elizabethan era and it was his first stab at tragedy. In the opening scene it becomes clear that brutal violence is inseparable from power Titus the main character in the play demonstrates his rage through torture and murder. It becomes clear as the play develops that violence is a common attitude amongst the Roman society this could mirror the attitudes of the Elizabthan society as they were strongly entertained by violence.
It is differently a book worth buying for the stronger readers who either have a good range of vocabulary to understand the book or are interested in developing their vocabulary; either way it is a gripping story well worth the read.
