Ophelia or The Dead mother (Ofelia o la madre muerta)
translated by Prof. Charles Philip Thomas
Ophelia or the Dead Mother Ofelia o la madre muerta is the story of Shakespeare's Hamlet which is completely changed around by modifying the focus and changing the protagonist of the work. The setting for the action is a medical clinic in Chile, or another Latin American country. The author describes the scenery as ``A white house with bare walls. Perhaps a very wealthy estate. A white mansion in the Caribbean. Maybe in a hospital. A drug rehabilitation clinic. A swimming pool. Or, a whirlpool. Perhaps a stream. Palm trees. The feeling of being surrounded by cliffs. A refrigerator. A table. Some chairs. A curtain. Everything white. Nothing like the Castle Elsinor.''
