Subject:        Hamlet's First Soliloquy
 
Hamlet's first soliloquy is so well known that one tends to gloss over lines
that are possibly not as explicit as might be assumed.  I would appreciate
feedback from all and sundry as to exactly WHY Hamlet must 'hold his tongue?'
Respect for Gertrude's feelings?  Fear of offending the court? etc. etc.
