Bernardo Does Not Believe In Ghosts

Royal family of Denmark, Guard discusses his hate for ghost

Bernardo Sticks To His Story

Bernardo still pleads to the world that he does not believe in ghosts and that Hamlet is even more crazy because he believes in them. Bernado believes that Hamlet must be psychologically damaged or just plain ignorant for believing in ghosts. Hamlet is grieving after the death and tragic murder of his father and he is doing this to get attention. He is pretending to see the ghost of his father to fool everyone into feeling sorry for him. He isn't getting any attention from his mother Gertrude, who is boffing with the new King Claudius every night. He needs to get it somewhere!
