Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master While Hamlet welcomes his old friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, he asks them what crime they may have committed to be sentenced to prison, explaining that Denmark is a prison in his opinion. The two friends reply that they do not think Denmark is a prison, and Hamlet retorts that things are not good or bad in themselves but that moral judgments are the result of one's own subjectivity.
