shakespeare comic 7

Don’t get me wrong, I love Titus Andronicus. But Titus’ attitude toward Lavinia post-rape has always bothered me. Lavinia is clearly not stupid – she is incredibly articulate and witty in the early scenes in which she has a tongue to speak – so it struck me as implausible that it would take her so long to find a way to communicate the identity of her attackers to her father. This comic is how I imagine things went down for awhile in the Andronicus household.
