Ghost

Ghost! But I thought that Halloween was over, I don’t know, I celebrate Día de Los Muertos. Anyways in Hamlet, at the beginning of the story, Bernardo and Marcellus see a ghost while on guard duty in the late night. This reminds me of Halloween night when friends are hanging out and they just happen to be situated in a “haunted maze” with fog all around to scare them even more. They tried to speak to it but overall they were just freaked out by it and instead ran to inform Hamlet.  Later on when Hamlet was determined to see the ghost that Marcellus and Bernardo claim to be his father. It turns out that it really was the kings’ ghost. He told Hamlet that he was not in heaven, somewhere else not as pleasant. King Hamlet told his son the murder plan that Claudius had committed in killing him to bestow the thrown and his wife. Now he asks his son to avenge his unnatural murder and death by killing King Claudius. Along with that idea I just saw the movie After Earth yesterday, and in it Will Smith spoke of fear. He said,”Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Fear is a choice, we are all telling our self’s a story”.
