Question and answer
"not so, my lord; I am too much I' the sun"
Well, yes, he feels that he's too much in the spotlight and he is playing on his role as "son" of a dead king and "adopted" son of his successor/assassin. [ But most anytime Shakespeare has a character talk about the sun, he's also using a code word for king. Just as the Sun was the ruler of the sky, the King was the ruler of his kingdom. So Hamlet is saying (as Claudius well knows), I'm too
much in the presence of you, the king. Remember he has been out of the country and has wanted to keep his distance from his beloved father's brother/successor. This use of "sun" as a code word for the king is just as common as the comic use of "horns" to indicated that a man has been cuckolded by his wife. ]
