I'm convinced that Shakespeare played the Ghost and doubled as Polonius.

I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Sohmer that Shakespeare played the
Ghost, however, I believe that he doubled as the Player King.

I like your conviction because I like all three men.  They are (were)
tough, hard-working guys trying to make a living in a cruel world.
Incidentally, I have just finished reading/skimming "The Ghosts of
Shakespeare" (1925), a weird little book on the ghosts and fairies,
premonitions and soothsayer predictions, and premonitional dreams and
prophecies in the plays.  Can any one comment on this book?   It's
written by L. W Rogers a theosophist who claims that Shakespeare
believed in all those ghosts and spirits et al.
