The Invisible Man by Herbert George Wells
|Title||The Invisible Man|
|Author||Herbert George Wells|
|Publisher||McFarland & Company Incorporated Pub|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
A teacher of Wells, Stover (emeritus, anthropology, Illinois Institute of Technology) explicates one of Wells' scientific romances--a genre that a 19th-century critic called "a condition of England novel" reflecting the growing social unrest of the middle-class. The editor introduces the text as science fiction and as a "dialectic of human destiny," discusses the cryptic epilogue first included in this edition ("So ends the strange and evil experiment of the Invisible Man"), and appends early reviews and other relevant commentary. c.
