Hancock, Brecken. "Roman or Revenger?: The Definition and Distortion of Masculine

Identity in Titus Andronicus." Early Modern Literary Studies. 00 May 2004. 27 Mar 2009 <http://extra.shu.ac.uk/emls/10-1/hancroma.htm>.


Summary: Hancock analyzes Titus Andronicus’ behavior and concludes that he became twisted and corrupt, going from Roman hero to Roman revenger. Initially, he held virtuous morals, but he followed it blindly, sometimes twisting their meanings to fit his own agenda. Hancock says this is what led to his downfall.


Use-value: The intention is to use this article as an argument source to backup the paper's thesis. Titus Andronicus will be considered a leader in the play of the same name. Because he did not follow his virtues carefully, he was not able to survive the political power plays that hurt the major characters of the play.
