Comment:        RE: SHK 14.1888 Hamlet

I've often wondered about Ophelia's reply, "My Lord, you know right well
you did."

Why would Hamlet deny giving Ophelia some gifts if they both know that
he did so?

If Hamlet is pretending to have forgotten, yet actually does remember,
is he just trying to drive her crazy?
