Name of this book is “Titus Andronicus”,
This is one of the fine tragedy play written by William Shakespeare in c. 1590, perhaps his earliest tragedy.
Titus Andronicus, a popular general and patriot, returns from a successful campaign against the Goths, bringing as captives their Queen, Tamora, and her three sons, one of whom Titus kills to avenge the deaths of his own sons. Titus has to settle a succession dispute between the late emperor's sons, Saturninus and Bassianus; Titus nominates the elder, Saturninus. The two brothers fight over Titus's daughter, Lavinia, and Titus kills one of his own sons in the struggle that results. Bassianus marries Lavinia; Saturninus dismisses Titus and marries Tamora, who loves Aaron, a Moor. Aaron persuades Tamora's sons, Demetrius and Chiron, to kill Bassianus and rape Lavinia, and frames Titus's sons, Martius and Quintus. He tells Titus that his sons will be spared if he sends the Emperor his severed hand as ransom. Titus's hand is returned to him with his sons' heads; the promise has been broken. Titus's brother Marcus Andronicus discovers Lavinia, who has had her tongue and hands cut off but is still able to communicate the truth of what has been done to her. Increasingly unpredictable, Titus raises an army of Goths against Rome. Titus's only surviving son Lucius captures Aaron; Titus seizes Demetrius and Chiron and bakes them into a pie. Titus kills his raped daughter and, showing Tamora the heads of her sons in the pie she is eating, stabs her. Saturninus kills Titus; Lucius kills Saturninus and is elected emperor. Aaron, still glorying in his evil, is buried up to his chest in sand and starved to death.
Widely accepted as Shakespeare's earliest tragedy, "Titus Andronicus" is the bloody story of a Roman general engaged in terrible revenge with the Queen of the Goths, Tamora. The play begins with Titus returning to Rome after ten years of fighting. He brings with him the defeated Tamora, Queen of the Goths, and her sons. Titus sacrifices one of Tamora's sons to avenge the sons he lost in the war, which begins a cycle of revenge in which Tamora and her lover Aaron the Moor plot and scheme against the remaining children of Titus. This entails especially horrific results for his daughter Lavinia, whose fate is thought to be based on a mythological story in Ovid's "Metamorphoses" about Procne and Philomela. The conclusion is full of further violence and death, with few characters remaining to tell the tragic story of Titus and his children.
