Explain the Dramatic Significance of Ghost in Hamlet. 2Zeeshan Ali answered 4 months ago

The ghost of dead King Hamlet sets the plot of revenge in motion. Seen by Horatio, Barnardo, Marcellus, the ghost only ever speaks to Prince Hamlet. It informs the prince about the murder perpetrated by Claudius and entreats him to seek justice and revenge. Even though, Hamlet remains confused about the veracity of his visions, he ends up doing just the same when he puts Claudius to death after the fencing match with Laertes.
