Titus Andronicus (Titus Andronicus) Titus Andronicus is the fictional Roman general as depicted by Shakespeare in his very bloody tragedy of the same name, probably written between 1588 and 1593. Titus returns to Rome after years of war with the Goths, bringing with him their queen, Tamora, as captive, along with her three sons and Aaron the Moor, Tamora’s secret lover. Titus sacrifices Tamora’s oldest son on behalf of his own dead sons in accordance with Roman ritual, thereby earning him her undying hatred. Tamora, having married the new Roman emperor, Saturninus, is now in a position to effect revenge on Titus, with the help of Aaron. This she does, and Titus is subjected to an unimaginable hell of cruelty, violence, murder and loss on a monumental scale. He appears to have succumbed to madness near the play’s end, when in fact he is planning his own counter-revenge upon his enemies. He might as well be mad, for all he has lost, and ultimately he is murdered, but not before he has wreaked his own vengeance upon his enemies. Suffice it to say that this play is so steeped in blood and violence that it was not even performed during the Victorian era (except with extreme bowdlerism), and has only seemed to enjoy a resurgence of popularity since the latter half of the twentieth century. This may or may not be a commentary on the tenor of our times. Our suggestion: If you use the name “Titus”, just leave the Andronicus part out – no associations.

No, No, Titus! (Claire Masurel) - Titus wants to be a good dog in his new home on the farm, but he can't figure out what that means; when he tries to board the school bus with the children, chase mice or lay eggs, or help the farmers plow and milk, all he hears is "No, no, dogs don't..." What DO dogs do? Titus learns at last that night, when he spots a fox sneaking up to the henhouse. Halpern's neat, brightly lit cloth-and-paper collages make perfect accompaniments to this simply told story; the widely spaced farm buildings are set on a grassy hill dotted with flowers, and Titus, golden, flop-eared, the picture of puppylike confusion, draws the eye even when the point of view is pulled back. Treat fans of Eric Hill's Spot books to a story with a real plot. Recommended for ages 4-8.
