his paper aims to shed light on Christopher Isherwood’s novel A Single Man in terms of main character, George’s one-day experience of identity. From the very beginning to the end, novel covers one-day story line and George’s sense of experience both as a homosexual and unique character. Why he should be regarded as a unique character is because of the fact that his regaining and losing his identity in one day can be analyzed in an existential point of view. In addition to this point of view, his uniqueness is possible to be related to his being homosexual. Single but not perfect because of his sexual preference, George’s one-day experience is determined by these dilemmas. In order to analyse the character, some existential and queer theories are applied to Isherwood’s A Single Man.
