Hamlet at centre, legs wide apart, to right, facing right, weight back on rear
(left) foot, leaning back, his left arm across his face, his right arm slightly
extended away from his body. He wears dark tunic and cloak. Before him on the
ground at right is his hat. The Ghost at right, a near transparent figure in a
winged helmet, forward, facing slightly left towards Hamlet. He holds his truncheon
in his right hand which is at his side. His left arm is raised chest high, and
he appears to be pointing at Hamlet with his index finger. Horatio and Marcellus
stand behind Hamlet and are partially visible at the extreme left. They stare
intently at the ghost. Behind is a wall. An archway through it permits a view
of distant buildings and the full moon. Quotation at foot beings: 'Look, my lord,
it comes!' etc.
