Individuality Shown in A&P
Image of page 2
Definition: Individuality is defined as a person who shows characteristics or qualities that distinguish them from others. “In other words, they seek to define themselves, for example, by their ideas, dreams, and imagination rather then be defined by social behavior or by the groups with which the associate” (Individuality in young/middle adulthood: autographical study) So, as one increases with age, and has gained more life experiences, the maturity and individuality also increase.

How is this related to A&P? Sammy (narrating character) is looking to stand out and be an Individual in front of “Queenie”. Through out the story he becomes more self aware of his situation (dead- end job, no girl friend … ect.) Only views the young girls from only a sexual point of view at the beginning of the story. He starts to appreciate the girls with a deeper meaning, his individual qualities have matured.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
