Subject:        Ghost Dad - French

I've had cause, of late, to ponder the speech of Hamlet's Ghost Father.
And it suddenly struck me this morning, he speaks French.  Any idea why?
I don't remember anyone else speaking French. Wouldn't Danish have made
more sense?  What is Danish for Goodbye? or is it a poetry thing?

I'm vexed
