Shakespeare created her, many are those who have painted her. Her spirit haunts us. On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping White Ophelia floats like a great lily; Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils... - In the far-off woods you can hear them sound the mort. ~ Arthur Rimbaud

Admitting his discovery could be pure coincidence, Steven Gunn of the university’s Faculty of History said he had unearthed records of the death of a Jane Shaxspere some 20 miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon, where Shakespeare was raised. She fell into a mill pond and drowned while picking flowers, called "yelowe boddles," or corn marigolds

“Ophelias death throes can be read as a moment of ecstasy. An ecstasy experienced by a woman usually trammelled by the conventions of her society, or of her imagination, who has come to regard her existence as mere drudgery, and who has finally found freedom.” Lucinda Hawksley ‘Lizzie Siddal: The Tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel’
