Titus Andronicus

Perhaps Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedy, Titus Andronicus was written in approximately 1590.

Some measure of the matter of this play can be gleaned from a single stage-direction: Enter the empress' sons with Lavinia, her hands cut off, and her tongue cut out, and ravished. (Act II, scene iv).
