Final Answer

The author exhibited her naive realism by proclaiming that humans everywhere share similar behaviors, based in what she believed were primal emotions. Her implicit assumption was that the truths conveyed in the play, Hamlet, were universal. The author also assumed that the native people would teach her their customs with little persuasion. She maintained the belief that hamlet had only one all encompassing interpretation. 

Best of Luck
