Invisible Man: Crash Course Literature 308

This week, we’re on to reading Ralph Ellison’s great novel about the black experience in America after World War II, Invisible Man.

John will teach you about Ellison’s nameless narrator, and his attempts to find his way in a social order that dehumanizes him and renders him invisible at every turn.

Ellison’s novel follows its hero from his childhood in the south to his many attempts to make sense of the world in New York City, and it takes him through, explosions, activism, and riots.
