Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 11 Up-Bloom has assembled what he refers to as "...a representative selection of the most useful critical essays on the late Ralph Waldo Ellison's masterwork...." The 12 articles include such diverse views as the feminist analysis in Claudia Tate's search for the "Invisible Women," Philippe Whyte's meditations on what he believes are "Trickster" elements of the story, and Alan Nadel's tracings of the relationship of this novel to Twain's Huckleberry Finn, as well as the critical interpretations of Kenneth Burke, Joseph Frank, Kun Jong Lee, William Lyne, Berndt Ostendorf, Thomas Schaub, and Robert B. Stepto. These highly intellectual, esoteric essays are well documented, and the book concludes with brief paragraphs about the contributors. Although for a limited audience, this comprehensive volume will be useful where an in-depth critical analysis of Invisible Man is part of the English curriculum.

Format: Paperback
I truly believe that Ellison's condensed prose is one of the best novels I have ever written. If a person says that they do not enjoy this book, it is because they are bad readers who completely missed all the motifs, foils, and statements that Ellison says with this book. This book takes a serious, easily cliched, topic and works it so well that I felt the need to read this book multiple times. And even after all that, I still feel that I need to read it more, just as to sink into every line. It is a must read, for those who read to the fullest!
