The ghost only speaks to Hamlet and this makes him suspicious of his own ability to understand reality. This internal battle to judge between reality and imagination isolates him and makes him hurt the people who truly love him like Gertrude and Ophelia. He evens delays taking revenge of his father’s death and only murders Claudius after his own death is assured. After her father’s death, even Ophelia loses her touch with sanity and ends up committing suicide. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Select as best answer Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
