Analysis of Ophelia
Transcript of Analysis of Ophelia
How does Ophelia fit into the stereotypical role of women in Shakespeare's time?
ACt II sc i
"No my good lord, but as you did command
I did repel his letters and denied
His access to me"
Act iii sc i
Ay, truly, for the power of beauty will sooner transform honesty from what it is to a bawd than the force of honesty can translate beauty into his likeness. This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once.
Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so.
Act iii sc i
I have heard of your paintings too, well enough. God has given you one face and you make yourselves another. You jig and amble, and you lisp, you nickname God’s creatures and make your wantonness your ignorance. Go to, I’ll no more on ’t. It hath made me mad. I say, we will have no more marriages. Those that are married already, all but one, shall live. The rest shall keep as they are. To a nunnery, go.
Act 1 sc iii
by Traci Yuen
"Affection! Pooh, you speak like a green girl,
Unsifted in such perilous circumstance.
Do you believe his “tenders,” as you call them?"
"I do not know, my lord, what I should think"
