in the play "Hamlet" Does Ophelia know what she is doing?

A photo of zefyre zefyre
Like when she is taught to like "sugar o'er the devil" and lies in front of Hamlet's face does she know what she's doing is wrong? Or is she too innocent to realize the consequences of living to her father's expectations?

can't i just ask a question to clarify something about the play? So if i ask the teacher for help and they say "do it on your own" they'd be a terrible teacher wouldn't they? :P

We're not your teachers. Pay me a salary, and I'll be your teacher. If this sounds harsh, then too bad. You're in high school, it's really not that hard.

Fun fact: there are no straight answers in English class. Choose the interpretation that is best supported by the evidence.

aannnnnddd this is why I am glad English class is over as of 8 days. I hate interpreting and analyzing stories/plays. Give me science or math where there is right or wrong as clear as the difference between black and white and I'm a happy man.

You make it sound as though there are no controversies in math and science.

I mean it in the sense of high school courses. Math and science are generally easier to answer because there is a fixed answer to most questions. You don't have to interpret some character an author created and prove it with quotes. Or relate some metaphor to an event and make some insane relations about the two.

You can concievably create a logically sound argument both for and against in this case. Just choose a side and back it up with proof, it doesn't matter which side you take.
