I don't know why I didn't know that this question had been answered. I must apologize for being so long in responding.
Also, I didn't understand that "the devil" in the line referred to the ghost. I thought it referred to Claudius. I can see that it might refer to the Ghost, but the Ghost does not have a pleasing shape. Claudius has the pleasing shape.
