What does this mean: "give me that man/that is not passion's slave."
Give me that man,That is not passion's slave, and I will wear himIn my heart's core, ay, in my heart of heart (3.2)
In many of Shakespeare's plays, the conflict between man's passion and his reason is apparent, especially in Hamlet, who vacillates between action and restraint. In the context of the quote Hamlet appears to be referring to Claudius, who he hopes to catch with a guilty face upon seeing the play that Hamlet has orchestrated.
