At nineteen, the idea that the more powerful a woman becomes, the harder society will work to dismiss her, was a paradox I couldn’t quite wrap my head around. But it accounts beautifully for why Ophelia means so much to so many people, and why critics of Hamlet have ignored her so studiously over the centuries. A girl like Ophelia, abused, abandoned, and stripped of options, is supposed to fade away quietly. But why should she? What has she got to lose? No one has more power to terrify than a person who is desperate enough to embrace madness and death. Just ask any young woman who has ever had to deal with people’s reactions to her self-harm, or her eating disorder
