      This paper considers the musicological aspects of the songs performed by Ophelia in Shakespeare's Hamlet. It proposes a reconsideration of the concept of madness and insanity by an attentive, attuned and learned listening to the songs sung by Ophelia and the ways in which they are performed and received.
