Professor Sir Walter Murdoch writes in The Policy of Polonius, "As a matter of fact, of course, the lines are nonsense, and Shakespeare was well aware that they are nonsense; he puts them in the mouth of a garrulous old gentleman who spends most of his time talking nonsense" *http://home.pacific.net.au/~morrisqc/Murdoch/Polonius.htm*....   [tags: Hamlet, William Shakespeare] 1799 words
