I agree with everything Hardy writes regarding the excellence of Dessen
and Thomson's 'Dictionary of Stage Directions'.  Get scribbling to
Cambridge: I crave, desire, yearn for an affordable paperback edition.
But remember that a splendid second edition (CUP, 1998) of Berger and
Bradford's 'Index of Characters' appeared quite recently.  This should
always be consulted in addition to Dessen and Thomson.  If you look
under 'GHOSTS' and 'SPIRITS' in Berger and Bradford, Carol, you will
find that Ghosts are accounted for in well over a hundred different
Renaissance plays.

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.1026 Re: Ghosts and Nightgowns

John Jowett is on my ghostly trail...and thanks to every one else now
veering off into 'Hamlet' proper and the niceties of night attire.

My original question was about the frustration of the ghost (High Priest
of Jerusalem no less) whose homicidal son is too far gone in guilty
madness even to recognise him. I should have added, he raves and
mistakes the ghost for 'the miller', so the floury connection is winning
over the enshrouded whiteness so far.
