He is where he is being eaten not where he is eating
Hamlet goes into his ex's room acting mad scaring her..."Lord Hamlet, with his doublet all unbraced; No hat upon his head; his stockings fouled, Ungartered, and down-gyvèd to his ankle; Pale as his shirt; his knees knocking each other; And with a look so piteous in purport As if he had been loosèd out of hell To speak of horrors—he comes before me."(Shakespeare Act 2 scene 2 lines 77-84)
