  1. Nunnery scene in Hamlet is a conversation between Hamlet and Ophelia. Pretending to be crazy before the spying Claudius and Polonius, Hamlet berates Ophelia and claims he never loved her.

    He suggests her to join the order of nuns and choose a life of celibacy than giving birth to sinful men like him. Ophelia is hurt by the words as she does not know that all Hamlet was doing was putting an act. Even though she is hurt, she is not resentful and laments the state Hamlet has been reduced to.
