Hyperion to a Satyr: Hamlet Act I, Scene 2 - Ghost Stories

Hyperion to a Satyr - The Fire and Water Podcast Network's Hamlet Podcast - continues Siskoid's scene-by-scene deep dive into Shakespeare's masterwork, discussing the text, but also performance and staging through the lens of several films, television, comics and even a rock opera. In Part 3 of Act I, Scene 2, we look at the end of the scene, from Horatio's entrance through Hamlet's small closing speech after he learns that his father's ghost walks the ramparts of Elsinore.
