StevieG asks:

In Hamlet, what does the militaristic imagery of the ghost description represent?

etutor answers:

Armour, Beaver, Truncheon: The ghost appears in the armour, which King Hamlet wore in his battles with King Fortinbras of Norway. The truncheon, or baton, is a military commander's sign of office. The ghost wears the beaver, or visor, of the helmet raised.
