Subject: Ophelia's Songs
How many songs does Ophelia sing in Hamlet, 4.5? A student of mine has
raised this question, and though I count four, with only a snatch for
"They bore him barefaced on the bier," I'm not sure if my count is standard.
1) How should I your truelove know
2) Tomorrow is Saint Valentine's Day
3) They bore him barefaced on the bier
4) And will a not come again?
