What does this hamlet quote mingy?

"I am but mad north-northwest: when the bend is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw.


Answers:    This is a classic example of the "wild and whirling words" near which Hamlet hopes to persuade culture to believe that he is mad. These words, however, prove that beneath his "antic disposition," Hamlet is fundamentally sane indeed. Beneath his strange choice of imagery involving points of the compass, the weather, and hunting birds, he is announcing that he is calculatedly choosing the times when to appear batty. Hamlet is saying that he know a hunting hawk from a hunted "handsaw" or heron, in other words, that, completely far form being wacky, he is perfectly dexterous of recognizing his enemy.
he knows the south better than the north..
