Subject:        Endings of Titus Andronicus

This thread on the editorial problems in Titus has been interesting. In
the course of studying the play over the last couple years and teaching
it in a course on the Roman plays, we have become curious about the
textual problems.

Would it not be the case that if the First Folio's authority for 3.2 is
accepted (as it is by almost all contemporary editors), then it is
somewhat problematic to deny that authority to the final lines which
first appeared in Q2?

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0361 Re: Endings of Titus Andronicus

This all might bring us to a recent article in THE SHAKESPEARE QUARTERLY
that deals with the famous Peachem illustration. The long time issue is
that the illustration does not represent a single scene in Titus
Andronicus. Thus it has been argued that the scene is not from T.A. but
of some other German play. However, it could very well be simply argued
that the Shakespeare play that Peachem saw was actually an earlier
version of T.A. than what has come down to us. Say Quarto X!

Best,
Elliott H. Stone
