FIRE QUEEN: The Tale of Ophelia


FIRE QUEEN: The Tale of Ophelia

JOANNA COURTNEY    Book Number: 90404    Product format: Paperback

Shakespeare's Ophelia was a lover, a madwoman and a victim. The real Ofelia is a very different story - a leader, a fighter and a fiercely independent woman. As a young girl she stood frozen as her mother threw herself on her father's funeral pyre. Such is the fate she learned of the devoted wife, and in that moment she swore never to belong to any man. Years later she is a force to be reckoned with - right-hand woman to the newly crowned Prince Hamlet to whom she has sworn her sword and her undying loyalty, but refuses his true desire... her hand in marriage. When Hamlet's jealous uncle plots against him, Ofelia will have to use every wile at her disposal to keep her prince safe from those who wish him harm, yet in the end it could be her unruly heart that is the greatest betrayer of all. 'Lovely writing and a terrific sense of narrative drive.' - Carol McGrath. 421pp in paperback with historical notes.
