In Hamlet, Ophelia’s grief and the decline of her mental health is due to the actions of men. In classical paintings, her violent death of drowning in the lake is portrayed as a calm and erotic peacefulness. What if, after Ophelia drowns in the lake, that she re-emerges from the water as a grief stricken, angry siren. In this afterlife, how can Ophelia be laid to rest and finally be freed from her grief?
