No, I went round to work, And my young mistress thus I did bespeak: ‘Lord Hamlet is a prince, out of thy star.’

No, I went round to work,
And my young mistress thus I did bespeak:
‘Lord Hamlet is a prince, out of thy star.’

Polonius picked up his briefcase, his overcoat and his car keys. On his way to the office, he stopped to tell his daughter she wasn’t worth as much as the man she loved. Saying something like, ‘He’s totally out of your league, kid,” he chucked her on the chin and went round to work.
Ophelia, left at home, wonders what her star is and why Hamlet is out of it. Is he the universe and her star the sun for her particular galaxy? Is Hamlet not a part of her Milky Way? ? How then do their orbits cross?
