Huh. Gentlemen? Not gentleman. And not Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Who ARE these gentlemen? Why do they get their own line? When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern came in, they came in with “attendants.” If the gentlemen are the attendants, why are they not called attendants? Is it a way to say “just a bunch of men”? Or, like, “the whole company”? Is it meant to be a big noise? And why GENTLEMEN? Like – gentlemen suggests that they are nobility of some kind. Why are a bunch of nobles calling for Hamlet?

It’s too bad we can’t ask the writer about this. I’m curious.
