This casebook features ten distinctive, provocative, and original essays in addition to a generous sampling of Ellison's comments on the novel. A number of the latter are from letters never before published; also published for the first time is Part II of Ellison's 'Working Notes on Invisible Man,' an undated exposition of his author's intentions likely written in 1946 or 1947. The ten essays are a selection of the most perceptive and comprehensive essays written on Invisible Man during the last thirty-five years, including an essay by Kenneth Burke, which began as a letter to Ellison about the novel even before its publication in 1952. Also among the essays is Larry Neal's 'Ellison's Zoot Suit,' in which he finds the novel an exemplary enactment in fiction of the 'black aesthetic.' The essays explore topics of narrative form, classical and vernacular points of reference, and the relationship between the themes of love and politics. Taken together with Ellison's 'Working Notes' and later commentary on the novel, the volume accounts for the continuing appeal of Invisible Man more than fifty years after its publication. An editor's introduction and a full bibliography accompany the essays, selections from Ellison's writings, and informal statements on his novel. The volume offers a rich variety of interpretations of Invisible Man for students and scholars of Ellison.
