But, look, the morn, in russet mantle clad,
Walks o’er the dew of yon high eastward hill.
– William Shakespeare
Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 1. Horatio uses personification and metaphor to tell us it is daybreak. The quote demonstrates a change in mood and language at the exit of the Ghost. Horatio also tells Marcellus that they need to tell Hamlet about the Ghost.
