 Polonius

Pompous, conniving, self-absorbed and dullAre few words that describe Polonius;but many wise words are found in his skullguiding not only his kin but royalty thus.While raising a teenage daughter and son,stubborn Polonius bowed to the kings.When madness ensued and murder begunhe intruded to uncover the stings. Yet the man is much too old to construethe young ways of Hamlet and Ophelia;the methods in his madness are indeed askew.Might this be heartache or hysteria?Though conceited, dull, and lousy too, Above all else, to himself he was true.

Polonius

"Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit / And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, ? I will be brief. Your noble son is mad."

"This above all: to thine own self be true,And it must follow, as the night the day,Thou canst not then be false to any man."

"Neither a borrower nor a lender be,For loan oft loses both itself and friend,And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry."

"Though this be madness, yet there is method in't."

Important Quotes

Denmark has become plagued with more violence and despair. Trying to get inside young Hamlet's mind has been getting harder and harder. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have failed to get information out of Hamlet, so I think it best to use Ophelia next. Though this might cause her pain, it is ultimately worth it to see where Hamlet's madness stems from.
