This si a pretty bloody tale. Lavinia has some gruesome scenes that are plain disturbing. It is tough to like Titus. I really hated the man. He is supposed to be the hero of this play, but I ended up hating him. A mother loses her son to Titus and seeks revenge. Titus murdered her son and she is the villian for seeking revenge. Hamlet was seen as a hero when he seeks vengence for his father's death, but her the mother is the villian. I found her more sympathetic and half hoped while reading the play that she would succeed. Despite this cold attitude towards a sympathetic female character, the play is well written. Literature should be able to spark debate and this is a play worth discussing and debating with friends.
