Dot Hutchison gives reader’s an enthralling new look at the classic Hamlet with an invigorating twist in her new novel A Wounded Name. Told this time throw the eyes of Ophelia, Hutchison is able to captivate the reader’s with a different view of the madness of Hamlet, or in the case of this novel, Dane. Ophelia always knew she was different. She could see ghosts, interact with the supernatural, and never quite fit in at Elsinore Academy. After the Headmaster’s untimely death, Ophelia is sucked into the life of his grieving son Dane, and his mad plan to avenge his father’s death. Seeing Dane through Ophelia’s eyes opens the reader up to his quite prominent flaws and struggle to grasp onto sanity. The reader knows how this story is going to end, and Hutchison makes it clear where it is going, but there is still that desire to change the ending and save Ophelia from her fate.
