What is the importance and meaning of ears in Hamlet? There are so many things related with ears (spilling poison to ear, eavesdropping...)

Ears and the act of hearing are a motif that runs throughout Hamlet, which enhances the theme of "Appearance versus Reality." Words and conversations are used as a form of manipulation and corruption. Manipulation is used by some characters (specifically Claudius) to improve their social status or power.
