“Her speech is nothing, Yet the unshaped use of it doth move The hearers to collection.”

In this post, I mentioned a piece I’d written in high school English, and the lovely Emily of The View from Duffy Square said she’d be interested in reading it!
Some background:  We were asked to imitate Hamlet’s soliloquy.

While many chose to give the assignment a humourous spin, I took it pretty seriously, as any Shakespeare fan of my magnitude rightly should.  I thought I’d play around with the idea of a piece from Ophelia‘s point of view, and ended up really liking the final product!

And so, without further ado, here’s Ophelia’s Soliloquy!

    Aww you mentioned me! Your soliloquy is SO GOOD. I was completely blown away. Fantastic job! I hope you’ll submit it to a contest or maybe to a literary journal or something. I really enjoyed reading your work. Thanks so much for sharing!!
