Dear Susan,

Here are some articles which deal with Ophelia and Psychoanalysis.
Also, Norman Holland's _Psychoanalysis and Shakespeare_ (1966) and the
collection _Representing Shakespeare_ (1980, Eds. Murray Schwartz and
Coppelia Kahn) each contain very helpful bibliographies which might list
other articles of interest to your project.  Finally, if your research
becomes an article, I'd like to read it-I am very interested in
psychological approaches to Shakespeare, so keep me posted.  Good luck.

James N. Brown and Patricia Sant "See(k)ing Ophelia: A Subjective Case
Study" 15th International Conference on Literature and Psychology.
1998.

"The Woman in Hamlet: An Interpersonal View" by David Leverenz
_Representing Shakespeare_. 110-128.

"Shakespeare's Nothing" by David Willbern. _Representing Shakespeare_.
244-263 (see also, David Willbern's book, _Poetic Will_).

Chapter 2 of Janet Adelman's _Suffocating Mothers_ may also be of help.

While not psychoanalytic, Elaine Showalter's "Representing Ophelia:
women, madness, and the responsibilities of feminist criticism"  in
_Shakespeare and the Question of Theory_  (1985) may also provide grist
for your critical mill.

Although not really literary criticism, Mary Pipher's use of Ophelia's
character in _Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls_
(1994) may be of interest.

Best,
Scott Oldenburg

I too recommend Janet Adleman's *Suffocating Mothers*, which I reviewed
for *The Shakespeare Newsletter*.  If you are interest, send the command
