Key quotes Titus Andronicus

Act 3 Scene 2
-” This poor right hand of mine
Is left to tyrannize upon my breast,
Who, when my heart, all mad with misery,
Beats in this hollow prison of my flesh,
Then thus I thump it down.”
Titus to Lavinia, not wanting to live due to being sad, heart unable to love (symbolises). Personifies his heart. Only use for his remaining hand is to slow down his heart. Mad with misery- alliteration, makes seem worse than sad,dispare, hopelessness.
