“I did love you once.” – Hamlet

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m reading Hamlet right now with a discussion group.  I came across the above line yesterday, which Hamlet says to Ophelia not long after his “to be or not to be” speech; he says it almost as an after-thought after some other rambling thoughts.  When I read it, my heart just sank.  Isn’t that one of the saddest things a man can say to a woman?  Especially if you still have feelings for him?  It just broke my heart.  Poor Ophelia…  Poor Hamlet…
