By sharing with Horatio everything that happens to him and "the fact that he has apparently shared with Horatio his deepest secret--the ghost 's allegation against Claudius--shows that Hamlet 's trust is more than merely verbal" (Evans). Horatio is the only man who knows what actually happens to Hamlet because of the trust they share. Since his father’s death, Hamlet begins to confide in Horatio because of his need for a father figure.

GENDERED ROLES IN MARRIAGE IN EMILY DICKINSON’S POEM Emily Dickinson was in a time where women were primarily raised to be the accommodating housewife, bound to the household duties of everyday life and social conventions created by a patriarchal society, which continued the diversion of both genders into different spheres of society.

“For millennia, men dominated women, and women had few alternatives other than to accept that dominance. As industrialization transformed the world, it brought women the ability to meet their basic survival needs without depending on a man.” In today’s society, women have become less submissive and more dominant. With all the imbalances that is happening between the two genders, women have stood up and took a stance against the imbalances, hence the feminist groups. In sum the dominance of men over women was once considered normal and in a way, it is still being enforced in today’s society. Women will work as hard as men, but will still fall short because they were born in the wrong
