The Girlhood Of Shakespeares Heroines In A Series Of Tales by Mary Cowden ClarkeBizarrely mundane and theres nothing tangling the stories with the plays, like Ophelias is just that when she was a child she had a nurse who killed herself after her lover left her, and it ends with a line Hamlet has about the pirates... But its interesting that as opposed to most spin off prequels and epilogues whose point is to identify, define, explain, Clarke refuses to enlighten. Shakespeares heroines arent individual ephemera set apart from the rest of women, the lives of all women involved with men are cloaked in mystery (even, as Ophelias story demonstrates, to other women), from which Clarke doesnt see them ever saved from, they die smothered. So I mean this was bland but now Im really curious about what Clarke did with her own characters.
