Hamlets perceived insane love for Ophelia in the text stems from his encounter with his father’s ghost. We first see his instability when his father’s ghost speaks to him and it continues to progress as time passes and Ophelia’s recent rejection ordered by her father. Hamlet comes into Ophelia’s room frightened after his encounter with his father’s ghost and she describes his exit: “He seemed to find his way without his eyes, For out o’ doors he went without their helps, And to the last bended their light on me.” When Ophelia uses the word “seemed” she is showing us her uncertainness in the evens that have just occurred. Alongside that she says that Hamlet left without his eyes implying some form of autopilot or sense of being lost and hopeless. He was with Ophelia and showed no romantic feelings for her in the immediate instance after encountering his father’s ghost. From this the reader can take that the ghost is what has caused Hamlet’s perceived insanity. Imagine encountering a dead parent’s ghost I think that would allow for a little bit of unstableness; the rest of the cast of Hamlet appears oblivious to this event labels his instability mad love for Ophelia.
