Why would Clov's physical position frighten Hamm? Why is it that having someone beside him makes him feel like he has a companion, but having someone behind him seems like a threat? Is Clov's feeling sincere?

HAMM (with ardour)
Moments like these seem funny from the audience. Do you think that they are slightly funny for the characters as well? If not now, do you think they were at one time? Is there anything but stubbornness that makes Hamm say that he will brave solitude? Is there anything but fear that keeps him from doing it?
