Michael and Lena Hill, both professors of English and African American studies at the University of Iowa, offer a pedagogical resource for instructors teaching undergraduate students. An introduction offers a biographical sketch of Ellison, concentrating on Oklahoma, Tuskegee, Harlem, and his status as a public intellectual, and establishes the centrality of the of Invisible Man to the writer's career and to the development of post-WWII African American and American literature. Early chapters summarize the events of the novel and the history of its publication, and provide cultural and historical background. Later chapters explore master themes that structure Ellison's portrayal of an identity quest in the novel, note dominant rhetorical devices, and chronicle the novel's reception over the past 50 years. A final chapter describes the best resources for further research, favoring anthologies and collections. Works cited pages conclude each chapter.
