The first in my 'Tragedies' series.
"Shakespeare's, Ophelia,... is Hamlet's lover. And, as such, she witnesses his irratic and bizarre behavior, enduring his rejection and humilation, while being used by her father in order to manipulate Hamlet.
When she learns that her beloved Hamlet has violently murdered her father, she succumbs to madness, and drowns herself."
This is 'Ophelia's' story...in a nutshell.
I will take other 'Tragedies from Literature' to fill out this series.
