“The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget,” [Thomas Szasz]. In William Shakespeare’s classic, “Hamlet,” Ophelia’s naivety presents issues because she blindly obeys her superiors, is not aware of what is happening around her and is quick to “forgive and forget.” Though some may argue otherwise, this major flaw is proven throughout the book with examples of how she is obedient, oblivious, and impressionable. Without these attributes, Ophelia could be able to stand up for herself, have a solid stance on important issues, and protect herself from getting hurt.
