This blog is about the individualistic ideas in literature and how it changes throughout time. I’ll try to approach the individualist aspect in the personal view point and describe what I feel that can be compared and contrast from my experience. The reason this topic interested me is that, as coming from a different culture, in my country individual aspects were sometimes neglected or sacrificed for the sake of the majority. However, as time progressed and western cultures and ideas were spreaded around, the rise of individual ideas became popular. In some sense, I always admired the way people express themselves, rather than holding it inside; which was common in the eastern culture. Because of my interest in such aspect, I’ll try to focus on this certain aspect and try to relate it.
