We may have known that there are 4 categories in Shakespeare plays:
- history
- comedy
- romance
- tragedy

In tragedy, Shakespeare seems to follow the tradition in which the plays are characteristics by plenty of death.

The bloodiest play is called “Titus Andronicus,” tragedy about “murder, mutilation, incrimination and rape” when a Roman general back to Rome.

The question then, What is the Most Way Character Die in Shakespeare Plays?

There are two sources to answer this question: first source said there are 100 death, and another said that 74 death in all Shakespeare’s plays.

Both sources mentioned the way of death was majority by stabbing.

In cases of 74 death, the top 5 ways character die are following:
- by stabbing, 30 cases
- by beheading, 5 cases
- by poisoning, 4 cases
- by stabbing and poisoning, 3 cases
- by baking into pie, 2 cases

Other ways of dead include drowned, smothered by pillow, lack of sleep, shame, hanging, grief, dismemberment then fire and indigestion.

Did you watch any categories of Shakespeare's plays? What is category do you like?
