My lord me and my fellow soldiers have seen your fathers ghost. in battle armor.
I must see this.
My fathers ghost told me Claudius killed him. But I must know if if it is telling the truth.
Could you act out a play where the kings younger brother kills him with poison?
•The setting is Elsinore Castle, in Denmark •The former King of Demark has died, and a group of soldiers tell his son, Prince Hamlet, that they believe they saw his ghost.
•Hamlet feels that he must seek revenge on his father’s behalf. However, he struggles with the authenticity of the “ghost” and is indecisive about his course of action.
•Throughout the rising action, Hamlet tries to figure out if Claudius truly killed his father. When he hears a group of actors are coming, he requests that they act out a play that depicts a king being poisoned in the ear. This mimics the way the ghost claims he was killed.
