Ofelia doesn’t know what is going on until she realizes that in fact she is being watched. Watched by an audiences whose eyes are fixated on her every move. Her every word. Ofelia could feel herself being watched but was unsure as to why this was happening to her. She also would question her existence on the stage. Personally, I take this as a philosophical piece of work. Even though we know she is on a stage because we are either reading or watching she doesn’t. I feel that puts the character in a very vulnerable position. She goes into thoughts of maybe being in a dream or some kind of haze.
