2. What role does the ghost play in Hamlet? Is it a real apparition or a figment of imagination?

The ghost appears early in the play as a messenger for Hamlet as well as a symbol for the rot in the kingdom. The sentries are afraid of the ghost, which haunts the peripheries of Elsinore, and they mull on the appearance of the ghost as a bad omen for the kingdom. They believe that the ghost is foretelling the fall of the dynasty.

The reactions of the sentries and Horatio to the ghost’s appearance is an indication that it is a device to allude to Hamlet’s dead father. The message from the ghost is the first proof of the crime that was committed by Claudius. It is only Gertrude who is unable to see the ghost when it appears in her bedroom. There have been multiple theories about the reason behind this, including one that suggest that she is unable to see the ghost because she is sure that Hamlet has lost his sanity.
