Jan 07,  · 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 little unrelated to the original story and somewhat strange. I liked Klein's twist on Ophelia's story, but I felt it should have ended when Ophelia had succeeded in her /5(75). Dec 26,  · Ophelia is my favorite book ever! It draws you in and you feel like you are actually in the story! I never knew what Hamlet was all about before I read it, and now I can't wait to read Hamlet! I would recommend it! I keep reading it over and over! Guest: More than 1 year ago: I've always loved the works of Shakespeare and when I saw this book /5. Ophelia (/ oʊ ˈ f iː l i ə /) is a character in William Shakespeare's drama cyrusofficial.com is a young noblewoman of Denmark, the daughter of Polonius, sister of Laertes and potential wife of Prince Hamlet, who, due to Hamlet's actions, ends up in a state of madness that ultimately leads to her drowningCreated by: William Shakespeare. 57 reviews of Ophelia's Books "Wow! I've been to tons of books stores and gotten buried in the shelves of resale book shops before but not much compares to the wealth of selection and hard to find titles that Ophelia's has to offer! /5(57).

Ophelia’s role in the play revolves around her relationships with three men. She is the daughter of Polonius, the sister of Laertes, and up until the beginning of the play’s events, she has also been romantically involved with Hamlet. Ophelia’s relationships with these men restrict her agency and eventually lead to her death. Ophelia and her brother soon meet the king and queen at a banquet, along with their son, Prince Hamlet. Being around the same age, Ophelia's brother and the likable prince often engage in wrestling, archery and sword dueling. Hamlet even takes the time to tease starry-eyed Ophelia. Well done. Easy to read. Sensual and well described. Hamlet is the main player here. Liked it better than "Ophelia" as a book to read but the character of Ophelia is more fleshed out and creatively imagined in Lisa M. Klein's story.3/5.

Jan 01,  · This book blew me away. It is the re-imagining of the story of Ophelia, from Shakespeare's play Hamlet (Folger Shakespeare Library). In the play, Ophelia is in love with Hamlet and ends up committing suicide because of his treatment of her and because he killed her father.5/5(5). Reviving Ophelia, a book by Dr. Mary Pipher, details the lives of adolescent girls and the ways that current society is failing to recognize their needs. Pipher says that while feminism has made great strides in the lives of women, we still have a long way to go concerning teenage girls. The book is . Ophelia is a difficult role to play because her character, like Gertrude's, is murky. Part of the difficulty is that Shakespeare wrote his female roles for men, and there were always limitations on them that restricted and defined the characterizations devised. In the case of an ingenue like Ophelia, a very young and lovely woman, Shakespeare would have been writing for a boy. Ophelia's Books, Seattle, WA. likes · 1 talking about this · were here.
