Through Ophelia and other personae (mother, artists, daughter, lover, war refugee) Merike Lugus explores questions of identity and survival."--Back cover.

Try Audible. Ships from and sold by it's like Shakespeare himself knew all along what really happened to Ohelia but kept it secret until centuries later. Ophelia is a character that is full of such raw human emotion, and that's really what drew me in. However, about two- thirds into the book, the storyline dragged on and was a /5(93).

It was before I had read the actual "Hamlet". I'd heard snippets of the play, but not the entire summary. This novel made an impact on how I read the play.

For the next couple of years since I read this book, I've kind of viewed Ophelia as intelligent and trying to hold her ground in her topsy-turvy world rather than as insane and overly /5.

The last time Ophelia appears in the play is after Laertes comes to the castle to challenge Claudius over the death of his father, Polonius.

Ophelia sings more songs and hands out flowers, citing their symbolic meanings, although interpretations of the meanings d by: William Shakespeare.

Shmoop is inclined to think not. What's so tragic about Ophelia (in our humble opinion) is that she hasn't done anything wrong, and she gets destroyed by the patriarchal court culture anyway. But the possibility's there.

Some of the flowers Ophelia gives away during her mad scene (like rue and wormwood) were used for centuries in abortion potions. Ophelia tells Polonius about Hamlet showing up all crazy-like in her room. In a situation set up by her father, Ophelia talks to Hamlet for the first time in weeks.

He is cold, tells her he didn't love her, and then says, "Get thee to a nunnery." Ophelia thinks he's gone totally bonkers and is. To her father and brother, Ophelia is the eternal virgin, the vessel of morality whose purpose is to be a dutiful wife and steadfast mother.

To Hamlet, she is a sexual object, a corrupt and deceitful lover. With no mother to guide her, she has no way of deciphering the contradictory expectations.

Here Elaine Showalter discusses Ophelia's madness as a particularly female malady, showing how from Shakespeare's day to our own Ophelia has been used both to reflect and to challenge evolving ideas about female psychology and sexuality.

The expressions on Daisy Ridley's face while acting said a million times more about the internal struggle and strength of Ophelia than the actual words of this book. This book is a bland, not particularly well written or researched, teen novel. I can't even call it a romance novel, because it's so /5(93).
