Overview

Titus Andronicus, Bilingual Edition (English with line numbers and French translation) by William Shakespeare, M. Guizot

The Shakespeare tragedy, in English, with line numbers, and translated to French by Francois Pierre Guillaume Guizot (1787 - 1874), French historian, and statesman. Published in 1864. According to Wikipedia: "Titus Andronicus is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, and possibly George Peele, believed to have been written between 1588 and 1593. It is thought to be Shakespeare's first tragedy, and is often seen as his attempt to emulate the violent and bloody revenge plays of his contemporaries, which were extremely popular with audiences throughout the sixteenth century. The play is set during the latter days of the Roman Empire and tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. It is Shakespeare's bloodiest and most violent work and traditionally was one of his least respected plays."
