sometimes i think about all the shakespeare plays where the wives and mothers just aren鈥檛 there. hamlet has a mother; did ophelia and laertes have one, too? did rosalind have a mom, did celia? who was edgar and edmund鈥檚 mother, who was lear鈥檚 wife? do any of the love鈥檚 labour鈥檚 lost characters check in with their moms while they鈥檙e in navarre? what happened to hero鈥檚 mother, who in some versions of the play is there but doesn鈥檛 speak? did prospero have a wife? why don鈥檛 we see prince hal鈥檚 mother? does egeus have a wife? does helena have a mom?聽where are all the mothers?
