No, not I;
I never gave you aught.

– William Shakespeare

Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1. In this example of dramatic irony, Hamlet says this to Ophelia as she attempts to return his love letters and "remembrances." Although Hamlet is speaking to Ophelia, his words apply to his mother following her "incestuous" and hasty marriage to Claudius. He now distrusts all women because of what he believes is his mother Gertrude’s adultery and directs his cruel remarks to the innocent Ophelia.
