Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

by Tom Stoppard

Ophelia

Character Analysis

Ophelia is a super minor character here. She is the daughter of Polonius, and Hamlet may or may not be in love with her. Claudius uses her as a tool (like Ros and Guil) to try to figure out what is wrong with Hamlet.
