Invisible Man documents the social invisibility of an ordinary African-American during the turn of the twentieth century. Ellison helps emphasize this invisibility by failing to provide a name for the protagonist. The story touches on many racial hot topics, including issues that still existed throughout the 1960s and beyond.
For the reading project, I downloaded an electronic copy of the 1995 Vintage Books edition of Invisible Man. At my standard font size, the book is 483 pages in length.
The Well-Read Man has even more to say about this book.
