Abstract

Titus Andronicus in which the young Lavinia is raped and then brutally mutilated, is arguably Shakespeare’s most explicit and

and the representation of her assault. Yet, the representation of rape, like rape itself, is socially and historically constructed.

By applying a temporal lens to productions of Titus Andronicus staged in varying time periods, performance can be seen

continues to reflect modern reality by depicting a contemporary understanding of rape and trauma, shaped by social mores,

legal structures, and scientific knowledge.
