Hamlet is a play not a novel, unless you are referring to something else? I would talk about:

* Act 1, Scene 2 - when Gertrude is loving towards Hamlet and Claudius - she is blind to their enmity.
* Act 4, Scene 1 - when Gertrude tells Claudius that Hamlet is mad, instead of revealing what Hamlet has just informed her that he is only 'mad in craft'.
* Act 5, Scene 2 - Gertrude is blind in uncovering Claudius' plan to kill Hamlet at the duel, thus why she meets her own terrible end. Neely argued that Gertrude 'died for her love of men'.

Oh I agree. She married her husband's brother after her first husband died didn't she, very soon after the funeral. And was wilfully blind because she chose not to see that her son had good cause to hate his stepfather - not least because he had murdered his brother (her ex husband) to become King.
