(*): Ophelia’s words when she attempted to return Hamlet’s letters. Also known as “the nunnery scene” Hamlet mistreats Ophelia and demands to commit herself in a nunnery, either a monastery or a brothel (in Elizabethan English). This heated tête-à-tête was the first and the last one between the two characters; Hamlet kills Ophelia’s father believing he was Claudius and then, he departs for England. Ophelia gets mad and drowns or kills herself by water. Ophelia’s maltreatment throughout the nunnery scene is probably another reason she loses her mind. Her bawdy songs before she dies narrate her deflowering and erotic frustration by her lover– Hamlet.
