In this engaging study, H. William Rice illuminates the mystery that is Ralph Ellison: the author of one complex, important novel who failed to complete his second; a black intellectual who remained notably reticent on political issues during the desegregation of his native South. Rice guides his reader to a greater understanding of Ralph Ellison, his oeuvre, and the American novel.


Chapter 1 Introduction Chapter 2 The Invisible Man in Invisible Man Chapter 3 The Magic and the Mystery of Words Chapter 4 A Socially Responsible Role for an Invisible Man Chapter 5 Outside History Chapter 6 Juneteenth: The Coon Cage Eight and the Jo Cah Chapter 7 Conclusions

Those versed in Ellison, African-American literature, and the art of the novel per se will find this a useful contribution to the literature. Recommended, upper-division undergraduates through faculty. CHOICE
