It supposes that Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus has depicted Carnivalism in trans-cultural ways that erasing the cultural, ritual difference of people, in order to make the cohesive combined hybrid which is visible in the characters of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, such issues bears the various studies in the different fields.
