Hamlet's Revenge

Shakespeare, Hamlet (Acts 1 & 2) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Ghost: I am thy father's spirit,
Doomed for a certain term to walk the night
And for the day confined to fast in fires
Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature Are burnt and purged away.

This is the part of the play that really puts the rest of the plays actions into motion. It really grabs you and hooks you in to make you keep reading. I really like the beginning of Act I Scene V, I think it is the best part in the first two scenes.
