Titus Andronicus

Debates and Opinions

Debates

  • Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare's worst play

    I simply need prove the resolution true by virtue of pointing out what an utter pile of dog feces that Titus Andronicus exudes by it's very aura. First of all, I thank you for your attempt to show me that there is a worse play than Romeo and Juliet by posting videos of Titus Andronicus(which I am already familiar with) but the fact that, yes, the cooking show setting is horrific, yet entertaining, does not mean that the original play by Shakespeare is as difficult to watch. I don't feel I have to defend Titus Andronicus because the fact is, it does not touch on any themes that I feel are bad or offensive.

  • Resolved: Fictional Literature Serves No Purpose

     When a student reads a play like Hamlet or Titus Andronicus, the student must use and improve his or her critical thinking skills to interpret the play, and understand its significance.

Opinions

  • Is this a more frightening work than Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray"?

    This is not to speak of other frightening works, such as Melville's Moby Dick, Christie's And Then There Were None, and Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus.

  • Did Shakespeare write the Elizabethan plays?

    In the preface to his 1687 adaptation of Shakespeare’s "Titus Andronicus," Edward Ravenscroft wrote: "I have been told by some anciently conversant with the stage, that it [Titus Andronicus] was not originally [Shakespeare's]…and he only gave some master-touches to one or two of the principal characters." Of course, we have no testimony like this involving any other author.
