Baron's Booknotes on Invisible Man
"This is a complete and thorough website for teaching Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man ." Included here are pages on "biographical information, chapter summaries, critical commentary on characters, and themes." Teachers should be aware that the site "contains so much information. . . .students could literally read the website in lieu of the novel." This is an "excellent source of information for the instructor who is teaching Ellison for the first time. . . .and has limited prep time. DISSENT: Decoding Ralph Ellison
Often overlooked or omitted in any biographical study of Ralph Ellison is a discussion of the myth "that he published only one book, and that his entire authority as a writer and intellectual rests on this one work." Gerald Early, writing in Dissent magazine in 1997, does a fine job of exploding this myth by showing the "historical importance" of Ellison's Flying Home and Other Stories , a collection of most of his pre- Invisible Man fiction, and two collections of essays:

    Home Society Literature A portal dedicated to famous persons of the world Ralph Ellison
    If Wright's protest literature was a natural outcome of a brutal childhood spent in the deep South, Ellison's more affirming approach came out of a very different background in Oklahoma. A "frontier" state with no legacy of slavery, Oklahoma in the 1910s created the possibility of exploring a fluidity between the races not possible even in the North. Although a contemporary recalled that the Ellisons were "among the poorest" in Oklahoma City, Ralph still had the mobility to go to a good school, and the motivation to find mentors, both black and white, from among the most accomplished people in the city. Ellison would later say that as a child he observed that there were two kinds of people, those "who wore their everyday clothes on Sunday, and those who wore their Sunday clothes every day. I wanted to wear Sunday clothes every day." Ellison's life-long receptivity to the variegated culture that surrounded him, beginning in Oklahoma City, served him well in creating a new take on literary modernism in INVISIBLE MAN. The novel references African-American folktales, songs, the blues, jazz, and black traditions like playing the dozens much as T.S. Eliot and James Joyce had referenced classical Western and Eastern civilization in THE WASTELAND and ULYSSES. An added difference for Ellison was that his modernist narrative was also a vehicle for inscribing his own and the black identity as well as a roadmap for anyone experiencing themselves as "invisible," unseen. "Time" magazine essayist Roger Rosenblatt would say: "Ralph Ellison taught me what it is to be an American."

    Ellison, Ralph Ellison, Ralph, , American author, b. Oklahoma City, Okla. Originally a jazz musician, he moved to New York City and became friends with Richard Wright . His earliest published writings were reviews and stories in New Masses magazine. His literary reputation rests almost completely on one novel, Invisible Man (1952). A classic of American literature, it draws upon the author's experiences, detailing the harrowing progress of a nameless young black man struggling to live in a hostile society. Ellison also published two collections of essays, Shadow and Act (1964) and Going to the Territory Juneteenth, which was published in 1999. See studies by J. Hersey, ed. (1974), R. G. O'Meally (1980), A. Nadel (1988), and J. G. Watts (1995).

    On Principle, v4n3 June 1996 by: James Seaton The publication of The Collected Essays of Ralph Ellison (with a preface by Saul Bellow, Modern Library) recalls the author of Invisible Man as one of the pre-eminent essayists of our time, and, furthermore, as author of some of the most searching reflections available on the implications of political democracy for culture. Today many argue that true democracy requires the leveling of hierarchies in culture as well as in society. The very notion of "literature" is rejected as inherently undemocratic and probably phallocentric. In his two earlier collections, Shadow and Act and Going to the Territory , (both included in The Collected Essays ) as well as in the other essays and addresses, some previously unpublished and collected in this volume for the first time, Ellison makes the case that high standards of artistic excellence are central to a truly democratic culture. Ellison's affirmation of the importance of the "sacred documents" for writers in particular responds to Henry James's famous lament about the difficulties that the lack of traditions and social hierarchies in American life presents for the novelist. Ellison argues that if life in the United States lacks the continuity and social coherence dramatized in European fiction, we have something else: "The moral imperatives of American life that are implicit in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights...form the ground of assumptions upon which our social values rest...they provide the broadest frame of reference for our most private dramas."

    Ralph Ellison Memorial Gallery Invisible Man © 1995 As the proprietor of RoHo, I am using photography as a socio-political tool. It has been my observation that classism, racism and sexism are three of the most divisive issues in contemporary American culture. Ideally, my photos may aid in heightening the awareness and effect positive change to eliminate oppression. Invisible Man is a photo essay that was produced during the Summer of 1995. The images were photographed in the Gateway National Recreation Area; Fort Hancock - Sandy Hook, New Jersey and Fort Wadsworth - Staten Island, New York. There were three inspirations for the photo exhibition. Invisible Man: I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me ... When they approach me they only see my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination - indeed, everything and anything except me. • The Supreme Court's 5-4 deactivation of affirmative action on June 12, 1995 in favor of Adarand Constructors v.
