Book Summary:

The narrator begins telling his story with the claim that he is an "invisible man." His invisibility, he says, is not a physical condition-he is not literally invisible-but is rather the result of the refusal of others to see him. He says that because of his invisibility, he has been hiding from the world, living underground and stealing electricity from the Monopolated Light & Power Company. He burns 1,369 light bulbs simultaneously and listens to Louis Armstrong's "(What Did I Do to Be So) Black and Blue" on a phonograph. He says that he has gone underground in order to write the story of his life and invisibility.As a young man, in the late 1920s or early 1930s, the narrator lived in the South. Because he is a gifted public speaker, he is invited to give a speech to a group of important white men in his town. The men reward him with a briefcase containing a scholarship to a prestigious black college, but only after humiliating him by forcing him to fight in a "battle royal" in which he is pitted against other young black men, all blindfolded, in a boxing ring. After the battle royal, the white men force the youths to scramble over an electrified rug in order to snatch at fake gold coins. The narrator has a dream that night in which he imagines that his scholarship is actually a piece of paper reading "To Whom It May Concern . . . Keep This Nigger-Boy Running."Three years later, the narrator is a student at the college. He is asked to drive a wealthy white trustee of the college, Mr. Norton, around the campus. Norton talks incessantly about his daughter, then shows an undue interest in the narrative of Jim Trueblood, a poor, uneducated black man who impregnated his own daughter. After hearing this story, Norton needs a drink, and the narrator takes him to the Golden Day, a saloon and brothel that normally serves black men. A fight breaks out among a group of mentally imbalanced black veterans at the bar, and Norton passes out during the chaos. He is tended by one of the veterans, who claims to be a doctor and who taunts both Norton and the narrator for their blindness regarding race relations.

He carries out this procedure on himself and renders himself invisible, but fails in his attempt to reverse it. A practitioner of random and irresponsible violence, Griffin has become an iconic character in horror fiction.

Book Summary:

The Invisible Man is a 1897 sci-fi novella by H.G. Wells. Wells' epic was initially serialized in Pearson's Magazine in 1897, and distributed as a novel the exact year. The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a researcher who hypothesizes that if an individual's refractive file is changed to precisely that of air and his body doesn't ingest or mirror light, at that point he will be imperceptible. He effectively completes this method on himself, yet can't become obvious once more, getting intellectually shaky accordingly.

Book Summary:

The novel opens with a Prologue describing the depressed state of the narrator, who remains nameless throughout the novel. He is an invisible man, he proclaims, and has taken to living unknown underground, sucking electricity from the state of New York into his many light bulbs that he has hung in his lair. The novel is to be the story of how he came to be in this position.As a young boy, the narrator overhears the last words of his dying grandfather, whose message lingers with him through high school. He is struck with this idea when he is asked to give his college oration to the town's most honored white men. At the fancy ballroom where he attends the occasion, he is ushered into the battle royal with the other boys hired for the evening's entertainment. First however the boys are brought into the room where a naked woman dances. The boys are next blindfolded and pitted against each other in a boxing ring. After several fights, only the narrator and the largest boy, Tatlock, remain and they are told they must fight each other for a prize.The next stage requires the boys to grab for gold coins on a rug which turns out to be electrified. The narrator is finally allowed to give his oration and is awarded a scholarship to a renowned black college. At college, he is first faced with the disillusionment which will overcome him by the end. The memory is painful as he relates the day he was given the honor of driving an old white trustee, Mr. Norton, around the campus. The drive goes smoothly for a while although Mr. Norton's questions surprise the narrator. Norton sees every student at the college as part of his fate. He also welcomes a chance to explore parts of the surrounding town . Mistakenly, the narrator drives Norton into a poor district of black sharecroppers and Norton is intrigued by a disgraced member of the community, Jim Trueblood, who is rumored to have impregnated both his wife and daughter. Trueblood gives a long description of the dream which made him commit the act of incest and resulted in his wife trying to kill him. After this episode, Norton feels faint and the narrator takes him to the Golden Day brothel in order to find whisky to revive him. Mental patients visiting the bar unfortunately rise up against their attendant, trapping the narrator and Norton in the middle of the fight. Falling unconscious, Norton is revived by a former doctor who speaks to him of the narrator's invisibility.

Book Summary:

It is a frigid snow-blanketed night in February in the small British village of Iping. A stranger has arrived and that description is more fitting than usual: when the landlady, Mrs. Hall, sees the man remove his hat and coat, she is petrified by what lies beneath. The man's head is completely obscured by bandages. Stranger still, the man makes a concerted effort to keep his face from ever being seen. Mrs. Hall chalks this bizarre appearance to the aftermath of a horrific accident, but despite her loquacious efforts to engage, he never reciprocates in kind. He does inform her that she is to keep an eye out for some parcels he is anxiously awaiting. Later on, a man is sent by the landlady to repair the clock in the stranger's room. He reluctantly agrees to this unexpected intrusion into his privacy, but only to the point of the clock actually being fixed. Once the repairman also tries to entice the stranger into conversation, the stranger suddenly turns violently angry,The very next day, the expected parcels arrive. When he leaves his room just long enough to collect them, the delivery man's dog bites him on the leg. He quickly retires to his leg which prompts the landlord, Mr. Hall, to follow up and check on his wound. The light is dim when the landlord enters, but there is no mistaking what he sees: the stranger has no hands. He has little time to make in much else, however, as Mr. Hall is suddenly and violently thrust from the room. Left alone for the time being, the stranger sets to unpacking his deliveries which primarily consists of books and cases of bottles. At the dinner hour, Mrs. Hall arrives with the man's food. Just before the stranger insists that from now on anyone who wants to enter must first knock upon his door ask permission to enter, Mrs. Hall gets a very quick of the stranger's face for the first time. It looked as if he had no eyes! The man spends the rest of the day working in secret but making a racket from the consequences of his frustrated efforts. Objects are heard hitting walls and sometimes breaking and his monologue with himself grows increasingly agitated.

Book Summary:

In 1952 Ralph Ellison won the National Book Award for his Kafkaesque and claustrophobic novel about the life of a nameless young black man in New York City. Although Invisible Man has remained the only novel that Ellison published in his lifetime, it is generally regarded as one of the most important works of fiction in our century. This new reading of a classic work examines Ellison's relation to and critique of the American literary canon by demonstrating that the pattern of allusions in Invisible Man forms a literary-critical subtext which challenges the accepted readings of such major American authors as Emerson, Melville, and Twain. Modeling his argument on Foucault's analysis of the asylum, Nadel analyzes the institution of the South to show how it moved blacks from "enslavement" to "slavery" to "invisibility"—all in the interest of maintaining an organization of power based on racial caste. He then demonstrates the ways Ellison wrote in the modernist/surreal tradition to trace symbolically the history of blacks in America as they moved not only from the nineteenth century to the twentieth, and from the rural South to the urban North, but as they moved (sometimes unnoticed) through American fiction. It is on this latter movement that Nadel focuses his criticism, first demonstrating theoretically that allusions can impel reconsideration of the alluded-to text and thus function as a form of literary criticism, and then reading the specific criticism implied by Ellison's allusions to Emerson's essays and Lewis Mumford's The Golden Days, as well as to "Benito Cereno" and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Nadel also considers Ellison's allusions to Whitman, Eliot, Joyce, and the New Testament. Invisible Criticism will be of interest not only to students of American and Afro-American literature but also to those concerned about issues of literary theory, particularly in the areas of intertextual relationships, canonicity, and rehistoricism.

Book Summary:

H.G. Wells barely revised The Invisible Man once it was published, adding only an epilogue. But the opening statement of that epilogue--"So ends the strange and evil experiment of the Invisible Man"--has posed challenges to scholars. How to understand it? Does it speak strictly to the scientific elements of the novel? Or is it a part of the work's political underpinnings? The 1897 New York first edition (the first edition to incorporate the epilogue) is used here as the basis for the exhaustive annotations and other critical apparatus of the world's foremost Wellsian scholar. The introduction examines in great detail the novel's position in the Wellsian canon and sets the major themes in context with the literary conventions used in his other works, particularly the scientific romances.

Book Summary:

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.
