In this lesson, students review the central ideas they have identified in the excerpt from A Room of One’s Own, and apply those ideas as they read an additional excerpt from Hamlet centering on Ophelia’s descent into madness. In Hamlet Act 4.5, Laertes returns to Denmark demanding revenge for the death of his father, Polonius, and finds that Ophelia has gone mad with grief.
