Note to Hamlet, 4.5.19: "artless jealousy"


Return
to
Hamlet,
Act 4, Scene 5, line 19
"Jealousy" means "suspicion"; in this case the guilty person suspects that others perceive his/her guilt. This "jealousy" is called "artless" because no art (such as pretending that nothing is wrong) can cover it up.
