O, Hamlet, what a falling off was there. From me, whose love was of that dignity That it went hand in hand even with the vow I made to her in marriage; and to decline Upon a wretch whose natural gifts were poor To those of mine!

This ghost is not humble –
That much is certain.
The primary objection here is that he is so much better
Than his brother – that he’s more dignified and has richer natural gifts.
This may be true.
Certainly he’s got that not-having-committed-fratricide on his side –
But this whole falling off notion would seem to suggest a Lucifer falling
from heaven to hell, from an angel to a devil.
For a spirit/man currently doing time in the flames of hell
This is a gutsy assertion.
