Question Not sure if this belongs here... - April 15th 2010, 02:36 PM

Hey Guys!
I'm not too sure if my post belongs in this section but here goes anyway...

I am in the mist of writing a 2000 word essay on the historical context of Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare.
I am completely stuck on what to write.
So far all I have is a list of Roman and Elizabethan traditions in the play but that is all.

If anyone has ever studied the play and would be able to give me a bit of advice in the types of things I could put in that would be great.

Thanks Guys!

Maybe you could write about the language that they used back then, or the characters.

I have not read the play but I have some ideas for something you might be able to examine. Consider what was going on in those time periods, too, historically. You can talk about the influence of the Crusades which led to->religion->religion praised in literature->religion questioned in literature. I think it may be interesting to point out that this was not so long (relatively speaking) after the Crusades, and England was decidedly religious. Juxtaposed with the lack of morals in the play...it's pretty insane.

Research what England was like in those days too. Socially speaking. Like the position of women, what relationships were, what was right and wrong, the justice system, and compare those things with how they are shown in the play...I cant really help you compare those things but I'm sure in your research you can find some relevant stuff and key differences/similarities.

For some quick ideas you should look at Sparknotes' "Context" page for the play. ~Google it.~
