"I can be bounded in a nutshell, and also count myself a king of boundless space, to be it no that i have poor dreams." - Hamlet, II.ii


HAMLET ... What's the news?

ROSENCRANTZ None, my lord, yet that the world's grown honest.

You are watching: I could be bounded in a nutshell

HAMLET climate is doomsday near: but your news is no true. Let me question an ext in particular: what have actually you, my great friends, deserved at the hand of fortune, the she sends you to jail hither?

GUILDENSTERN Prison, mine lord!

HAMLET Denmark's a prison.

ROSENCRANTZ then is the human being one.

HAMLET A goodly one; in which over there are countless confines, wards and dungeons, Denmark being one o' the worst.

ROSENCRANTZ us think no so, mine lord.

HAMLET Why, then, 'tis none to you; for there is nothing either great or bad, yet thinking renders it so: come me the is a prison.

ROSENCRANTZ Why then, your ambition renders it one; 'tis also narrow for her mind.

HAMLET O God, I might be bounded in a nut shell and also count myself a king of limitless space, were it no that ns have negative dreams.
