Hamlet also expresses the possibilities that the ghost could have been the devil.

But the king admits that he had done some bad things in his life therefore he is “doomed for a certain term to walk the night” (I.v.15). As hamlet figures it out that the husband of his mother is a murderer—Uncle Claudius—he realizes that his mother is at fault.

By the narrator talking to himself in the beginning of the story before the killing, you would of assumed that he was insane.
