At one point Ophelia 3 turned into a man and Hamlet 3 turned into a woman. If you know me how can you be my friend? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Elliot’s Mythic Method is in order here since there is little to hold onto plotwise except what you bring to it from the hamletmachins in terms of one’s knowledge of Shakespeare’s work.
