    Full disclosure I wrote my master s thesis on Ellison s novel because I thought the first time that I read it that it is one of the most significant pieces of literature from the 20th century Now that I teach it in my AP English class, I ve reread it many times, and I mconvinced than ever that if you are only going to read one book in your life, it sho

    I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fibre and liquids and I might even be said to possess a mind I am invisible because people refuse to see me When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination indeed, everything and anything except me When I first read the book last year, the above quote really stood out

    Invisible Man is an extremely well written and intelligent novel full of passion, fire and energy it s such a force to be reckoned with in the literary world, and not one to be taken lightlyI am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors

    When I discover who I am, I ll be free Reading Invisible Man during a visit to New York was a deeply touching experience What an incredible bonus to be able to follow in the footsteps of the young man struggling with racial and political identity questions The physical presence of New York life enhanced the reading, and the city added flavour and sound to the story Hearing th

    Most capital G Great books can be a grim trudge, like doing homework Invisible Man is one of the few Great books that s also relentlessly, unapologetically entertaining, full of brawls, explosions, double crosses, and the exuberant mad As a meditation on race, it s as fresh as if it had been first published yesterday One of the most essential American novels ever written and only the

    The writing is hypnotic in Invisible Man and the dread all pervasive Every time I sat down to read a bit , I was sucked into the prose, even though it made me deeply uneasy and worried about what was going to happen next.It is stark, it is poetic, it is difficult, and it is rewarding Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement

    If social protest is antithetical to art, Ellison stated in an interview with The Paris Review, what then shall we make of Goya, Dickens, and Twain I found the interview stimulating, especially since Ellison s narrator s voice seemed to reach across the pages of this book and coalesce with the myriad of current events Perhaps, though, this thing cuts both ways, Ellison continued in the interview, th

    This is such an amazingfantasticincredible book If I were making a list of the 10 Best Novels About America, this would be at the top I first read Invisible Man in a college literature course, and my 19 year old self liked it, but rereading it now was a really powerful experience I definitely appreciated itand admired Ellison s vision This novel is the story of a black man in America We never learn our narr

    I put off reading this book for years, intimidated by its length and its venomous reputation When I finally dove in, I definitely found lots of venom but lots of anti venom too Lurking behind all the nihilism in the title and particularly the struggles during his college years is a hidden invisible optimism and dark humor I felt In the US soon post Obama, we have definitely moved forward superficially in the battle

    I have been seeing this on friends feeds lately I read this for a college seminar African American History of the 1930s and 1940s It was quite an interesting class as the demographics were literally half African American and half Caucasian, thus spurring provocative discussions Our professor had us read Ellison s masterpiece and even though I do not remember it in its entirety, I remember the protagonist meeting Booker T W
