Hamlet identifies with an adolescent of the 1990s more than he does with the youth of his own time Hamlet is immature sarcastic and takes action during the heat of passion which is very much like the behavior of the youth in the 1990s Love control over action and the ability to overcome depression are just a few ways to prove maturity It is obvious Hamlet loves Ophelia in his own way the celestial and my souls idol the most beautified Ophelia Hamlet II ii 109- 110 but his way is not mature enough to include trust toward his lover The trust that Hamlet should have given her was the key of his madness This madness that Hamlet cannot trust his love with is the same madness that he loses total control over because of his immaturity it then causes him to do things such as kill Polonius that a person that was mature could stop The madness that Hamlet assumes is understandable but he can never get over the actual death of his father by still wearing black a year later and the hasty marriage of his mother to Claudius Compared to Horatio who is calm and cool throughout the play and Fortinbras who collected an army to fight for his uncles land and honor Hamlets maturity level for his time is low especially for being a prince Today Hamlets age group is more immature than during his own time so he relates to the youth of the 1990s better than he does with the adolescents of his own time Sarcasm and blunt rudeness is often used by Hamlet in order to offend people that during his time he should not have offended Hamlet often used the hasty marriage of his mother to offend Claudius The first time that Hamlet offends Claudius in the company of another person is when Claudius is supposed to be helping cheer Hamlet
