        Individuality: the key element that differentiates people from other people.  Individualuity is what makes humans human.  Through artforms such as music, language, and literature, humans have been given the potential to be an individual; they have been allowed to make their mark on society.

        This potential has been the topic of countless of stories, depicting the stuggle that humans endure every day between conforming to what a society demands and what the individual believes to be right.  In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the protagonist, young Huckleberry Finn, is learning to grow as an individual.  Ultimately through eperience he becomes a little more cosmopolitan -- a little more aware of how the world works, how hypocritical it can be, and how cruel it can be.  However, Huck Finn also realizes that there is good in the world, and appreciated things he hadn't appreciated before.

       The following online analysis of individuality in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, has been created to better understand not only how important each person's individuality is, but to also see how individual opinions and voices impact our society today, on a large or small scale.
