It has been my age-long longing to find out what Shakespeare thinks about women. This article is written to fulfil that very overwhelming desire which I have procrastinated satiating for a long time due to a number of reasons. In quest of ‘Shakespeare’s women’, I have decided to analyse the women characters in three of his tragedies, namely Julius Caesar, Macbeth and Hamlet. ‘Frailty! Thy name is woman!’, the barb which is used as the title of the article is cited from Hamlet, Shakespeare’s masterpiece, which was written in approximately 1600.
