Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master These words are spoken by Lord Polonius aside from a conversation with Hamlet. Hamlet pretends to be crazy and deliberately makes odd answers to simple Polonius questions; for example Hamlet says he’s reading “words“ instead of giving the subject of his reading. Polonius remarks that these answers are unexpected, but make sense in some way, and finds Hamlet's behavior astonishing.
