What, are they children?

This line feels like a delayed response somehow. Rosencrantz has mentioned the children a long sentence before this one. Is there something about goosequills that somehow makes Hamlet understand what Rosencrantz said before? In which case, what do goosequills have to do with children? Or really, what do they have to do with anything? Is the idea that the warriors, with their swords slung at their sides tremble with fear when children come around?

The goosequills, it would seem are for the writers – , their mightier-than-sword pens – but the writers aren’t the children are they?

Or ARE they? Is it like Written By a Kid? I’d go see an Elizabethan Written By a Kid.
