Commentary: This is the first of two essays on the subject of Ophelia in The Magazine [See also the anonymous article in Spring number 1896: pp. 4549]. Here Jane Keppie argues that Ophelia is not a stereotypical weak and gentle girl, but a passionate individual of noble mind ‘caught in the toils of destiny’.
