In 'Hamlet', you have a king who has been killed by his brother. The ghost says he cannot rest in peace until his death has been avenged. The person who has made him die has to be punished. Hamlet is viewed as someone who takes too long to do what he does. Audiences were enchanted by the fact that we began the show with a funeral. We started off with a very famous folk song which is sung at funerals. http://500ab102e3079df093a4-ff8eeadd950d51fd1fc939dca75b3973.r47.cf1.rackcdn.com/assets_green.swf
