"Lo, where it comes again!"

 Interpretation of the Ghost of Hamlet's Father:

"A mote it is to trouble the mind’s eye.
In the most high and palmy state of Rome,
A little ere the mightiest Julius fell,
The graves stood tenantless, and the sheeted dead
Did squeak and gibber in the Roman streets;
As, stars with trains of fire and dews of blood,
Disasters in the sun; and the moist star,
Upon whose influence Neptune’s empire stands,
Was sick almost to doomsday with eclipse:
And even the like precurse of fierce events,–
As harbingers preceding still the fates,
And prologue to the omen coming on,–
Have heaven and earth together demonstrated
Unto our climature and countrymen.–
But, soft, behold! lo, where it comes again!"


Hamlet and the Ghost of His Father


  1. In Creating these pieces, I decided to go a little abstract because I felt like the nature of the incident is abstract. I am not convinced Hamlet really saw the ghost-- he might just be mad. I tried to represent that.

  2. You should definitely talk making them abstract because of the nature of the incident in your artist statement for the gallery!
