In association to "scant of breath" fat must refer to Hamlet's condition
at that moment rather than a permanent characteristic; and the Queen
offers her napkin because she realizes what his state is.

Cheers,
Miriam

Hi there,

So where does this repeated idea that Burbage was fat and weighed 17
stone derive from?
