…they seem to be unable to forgive her for not having been a heroine.
A.C. Bradley on the reception of Ophelia by a large number of readers (via shakespeareismyjam)
THAT’S IT! THAT’S THE PROBLEM!
But the thing is, so so many of Shakespeare’s characters, male and female, young and old, rich and poor, are not heroes. His characters are full of inaction and doubt and flaws and terrible decisions, and that’s part of why we love them so much. Half of his characters are victims of circumstance, and the other half are terrible people. So why should Ophelia be required to be an exception? No one else in the play can help their circumstances; Claudius is the closest we get to a character who’s in control of his own fate, and even he is racked with guilt and regret. One way to look at Hamlet is that it’s a study in helplessness, that the plot happens and the characters are incapable against it.
So why are people disappointed when Ophelia doesn’t stand up and throw over the requirements of the plot when literally no one else in the entire play is capable of doing this, either?
