In response to Beck's question about women who provoked a tragic
ending...  I assume that since you did not include Gertrude, that you
believe that she is completely innocent of any wrong doing in Hamlet.
She is certainly not evil, but couldn't her submissiveness to Claudius
be cause to point some of the blame in her direction?  An "O'er hasty
marriage"?

To Verena Beck:  you might look at Henry VI for evil women, including
the "witch" Joan la Pucelle.  frances k. barasch
