>Can someone answer the significant question: why would an evil ghost try
>to spur Good?

Is this a hinge upon which Christianity closes in upon itself? What
Good? Revenge?  What would Jesus say to that?

In response to the comment by Matthew Baynham,

As with you, I have little knowledge of Hamlet, however, I am quite
familiar with Macbeth.  From what I do know, I believe that Steve's
statement is true.  Religion was an extremely strong doctrine in
Elizabethan times, and people were very much influenced by the words
within.  A question I have been pondering along this thread is if in
fact it was actually Banquo's ghost, or simply a figment of a maddening
imagination--two very different things.
