After looking through numerous definitions and asking others on their views, the definition from the oxford dictionary seemed to sum up the general thoughts of my family and friends. “…a departure from what is normal or accepted, a moral or mental lapse.” These views might differ from person to person as morals and ideas change and societies accept different behaviors.

    spiral, while Hamlet's remains intact.  In this paper, I will show that it is the manipulation by and loss of the two men Ophelia loved most-Hamlet and her father, Polonius-which leads to her madness. There have been many theories offered-especially by psychoanalysists-concerning the cause of Ophelia's madness.  Freudian theorists like Theodor Lidz attribute it to Ophelia's incestuous feelings for her father and her desire for Hamlet to take her away from, or even kill him.  When this actually does
