Subject:        Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines - Ophelia

Another addition to my "Shakespeare and His Critics" website is Mary
Cowden Clarke's fictional account of Ophelia's childhood from her book
"The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines" (1851-1852), as abridged by her
sister Sabilla Novello.  This story provides a good example of the sort
of character-based criticism of the Victorian period, imagining the
character as a real person with a life history extending before and
(except in the case of Ophelia and others who die) after the play in
which they appear.
