Identity In Act One Scene Two Beneatha Asagai

Decent Essays
In scene two Beneatha is portrayed as this strong, confident, now it all young women. She feels that if she lets anyone in her life they will harm her or they aren’t worthy of her time. Especially throught pages 60-65 when Beneatha talks about Asagai it shows clearly that both have feelings for each other but she is trying not to show it to him when she says, “I’m not interested in being someone’s little episode or one of them!” She tells him that she won’t be defined by her man but has ambitions and dreams she wants to achieve. I absolutely agree with that logic but I think currently she is starting to be a different person and is trying to hide her identity or her place of heritage. What I mean by that is that she doesn’t want to be known
