Subject: 14.2195 Dramatis personae
Comment: RE: SHK 14.2195 Dramatis personae
I have a lot of time for the 'entity' as spirit rather than ghost. But
if the ghost is Hamlet Sr. but not J.R.'s father it would explain why
he/it has no compunction about encouraging Hamlet Jr. on a course of
action that even a person of normal vision would expect to be fatal. I
don't see why he/it can't be dissembling when claiming to be his father.
