what can you tell me about the relationship between Hamlet and Ophelia?

Does anyone have any interesting information about the relationship between Hamlet and Ophelia? Although I have studied the text, I wondered if there are any little-known juicy nuggets about the pair exclusively - separting them from the rest of the characters in the play.

The only 'information' that anyone can have about anyone in the play is what is there in the text itself; so if you've read it, then you have the information.

the answer here is a bit tricky because even after reading the text people do not really know if there were any juicy fish fingers between hamlet and ophelia.obviously its clear thet ophelia really loved hamlet.its not clear about hamlet because he rejects ophelia's love in the nunnery scene but when ophelia was being buried hamlet said something loke i loved ophelia .......somthing something i cant remember but if you read that scene again there is a lot of evidence to show that hamlet loved ophelia. Good luck
