Does anyone have an idea just what on earth Hamlet meant by running into Ophelia's closet all loony-like? Why were his socks down? Why didn't he speak a word to her? Why did he seize her arm? Why did he nod three times? Why did he feel his way to the door while keeping his eyes on her?
The way Franco Zefferelli staged it, Hamlet faked the whole thing so Polonius would spread the word that he was mad.
I need help understanding that scene. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
