The Tragedy of Titus Andronicus is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, written around 1590, though records have shown that an early version had been drafted as early as 1577. The play tells the history and downfall of the titular character, a general who at first is welcomed to his home city with open arms as a military hero. However, as time passes, he slowly slips into madness, taking his family and a good portion of the cast with him.
