in consequence of the missive, Hamlet's Age, penned by Stacie M.
We're going to be talking about Hamlet in about three weeks, so if you'd like to discuss how it is he seems younger than we're told he is, please post your question then.
Briefly, I'll say that we are told he's thirty. There are people who believe that the grave-digger's saying Hamlet is that old was simply a slip in the text. But that's the age the received text tells us he is, so that's what we have to work with.
