From: Carrol Cox Hamlet never, not even once, sits down to analyze the situation but plunges on from one snap judgment (followed by immediate implementation) after another. ===================================================== Still, he doesn't get the job done he knows needs doing until it's too late for mommy and anyone else. Ironically it comes with his foil who has no trouble getting right to the point. I think Vishvesh is right. The constraints of the play are what hold Hammy back. BUT!!! he could override them, if he wanted. The only reason for matching Hamlet with Prufrock is that Prufrock himself does, and admits it doesn't work. Cheers, Peter.
