Quotation at foot: 'Look, my lord, it comes!' Rough pencil caricature.
Ghost at left, side on to viewer, facing right. He seems to be doing something
akin to the 'goose-step' and his left leg is well off the ground. He wears
armour and a plumed helmet. He carries a truncheon in his left hand, which
he rests on his left hip. To the right is Hamlet starting back in horror.
He is side on to the viewer, facing left. His hair is standing on end
and his right arm is partly extended, the palm of his right hand raised
towards the Ghost. Behind him stands Horatio, knock-kneed and with toes
turned in. His left hand is upon Hamlet's shoulder. At centre background,
barely discernible, are the battlements and a castle gate. Before the
castle gate is a figure with arms raised in horror (Marcellus?).
