About the Authors
  • The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to students worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance. The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems. Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations. For this second edition of Titus Andronicus Sue Hall-Smith has written a new section on recent scholarship and important contemporary performances of the play. The edition retains the text prepared by Alan Hughes, based on the first quarto and supplemented by crucial additions and stage directions from the Folio. In the introduction, Hughes contradicts the historically popular view that Titus Andronicus is a poor play of dubious authorship. Joining the growing ranks of critics who take the play seriously, Hughes applauds its thematic unity and grim humour, and demonstrates that it is the work of a brilliant stage craftsman, confident in his mastery of space, movement and verse.

    • Updated edition, containing a new introductory section by Sue Hall-Smith which analyses recent critical and stage interpretations
    • Contains an updated reading list
    • Popularity of this play greatly enhanced by Juliet Taymor's film Titus (2000)

    Review of the first edition: 'The great strength of Hughes's edition is its attention to the theatrical aspects of the play … his discussion of the play in performance is illuminating.' Studies in English Literature
