Picking up in 1989, where Alan C. Dessen's celebrated study of the stage history of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus left off, Michael D. Friedman's second edition adds an examination of twelve major theatrical productions and one film that appeared around the world in the following two decades. Friedman identifies four vital lines of descent in the recent performance history of the play: the stylised approach, which renders the play's savagery in a formalised manner; the realistic approach, which features literal and serious representations of bloodshed; the darkly comic approach, which takes full advantage of the play's opportunities for black humour; and the political approach, which uses the play as a vehicle to comment upon contemporary attitudes toward violence, warfare, and repressive governments. All of the productions covered by Friedman fit primarily into one of these catagories, but Julie Taymor's harrowing film Titus (1999), based upon her 1994 stage production at New York's Theatre for a New Audience, incorporates elements from all four lines of descent, making it the most characteristic, as well as the most influential, contemporary performance of the play. Friedman's second edition extends Dessen's study to include an in-depth consideration of Taymor's widely-viewed film, along with chapters devoted to the efforts of major international directors including Gregory Doran, Silviu Purcarete, and Yukio Ninagawa. This expanded volume will prove essential to students of Shakespeare's play, along with scholars interested in the tragedy's gruesome yet occasionally comical performance history.

Originally published in 1995. In three parts – introduction, criticism and reviews – this volume examines the goriest of Shakespeare’s works. The editor’s exhaustive introduction runs through the pattern of changing scholarship and commentary, introducing the key interests in the play, from its authorship to its language, rhetoric and performance. Early commentaries focused on arguing about whether the play was truly Shakespeare’s. A selection of the most important of these are included here followed by later investigations looking at myriad topics and characters – revenge, violence, race, Aaron, women, tragedy and Tamora. The large section of reviews of stage performances, arranged chronologically, ranges from 1857 to 1990. Two final pieces interestingly survey stage history of Titus in Japan and in Germany.
