摘要:As a novel that describes the black experience in America and the human struggle for individuality and identity, Invisible Man stays sixteen weeks on the best-seller list. Some critics claim that it is the most important American novel that appeared after World War II.

In writing Invisible Man in the late 1940s, Ralph Ellison brought onto the scene a new kind of black protagonist—educated, articulate, and self-aware. Critics have interpreted the novel from different perspectives. They comment on its craft, structure, complex themes and rich culture sources, etc. The diverse approaches and pluralistic perspectives of criticism reflect the inclusive nature of the novel itself. Though a black writer, Ellison does not dwell on the Negros’ social status, civil rights movement and their prospects in his works. Unlike the black writers before him, Ellison does not depict purposefully the unfairness and discrimination of the Negroes; instead, he remains calmly objective when it comes to the black-white relations and reveals his unique opinions on Negroes’ search for identities. Ellison’s view is that the African-American culture and sensibility is far from the downtrodden, unsophisticated picture presented by writers, sociologists and politicians, both black and white. He posits instead that blacks have created their own traditions, rituals, and a history that forms a cohesive and complex culture that is the source of a full sense of identity. In an attempt to present this theme in Invisible Man, Ellison interweaves it with some unique techniques which help to promote it in the novel. And the readers have to go far beneath the surface to achieve the full meaning of the novel.
I.    Ralph Ellison, an African-American Literary Talent
     1.1 Ralph Ellison’s Life
In 1952, an obscure black writer published a novel, which was immediately hailed on all sides as a landmark in Afro-American literature, a classic, and an imperishable masterpiece, perhaps the greatest American novel of the country. The novel is Invisible Man, and the author, black writer Ralph Ellison was accordingly elevated overnight into the major American writer. Generally speaking, for the remaining 42 years of his life, he was treated reverently on the strength of this one book.

Ralph Waldo Ellison was born in 1914, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, a state which had no tradition of slavery and whose patterns of segregation were not so inflexible as to prevent an easy relationship between black and white. From his birth, Ellison’s parents knew he was bound for prosperity. His father even named him for the great writer Ralph Waldo Emerson in an effort to ensure such success.  As Ellison himself says in reference to his parents, “no matter what their lives had been, their children's lives would be lives of possibility.” Mrs. Ellison, a maid, would bring home books, magazines, and record albums that had been discarded in the homes she cleaned. Ralph and his brother, Herbert, were supplied with chemistry sets, toy typewriters, and a roll-top desk so that they would have the tools to succeed. 
When he was a teenager, Ellison and his friends daydreamed of being “Renaissance Men.” Therefore, they studied the values and attitudes of Native Americans and whites, as well as blacks. Ellison revered and admired the musicians of his area. At Douglas High School, Ellison followed his inclination toward music. In 1933, Ellison left Oklahoma and headed to the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama to study music. Though not pleased with the desire of the state’s people, black and white, to categorize him as he 论文英语论文网提供整理,提供论文代写英语论文代写代写论文代写英语论文代写留学生论文代写英文论文留学生论文代写相关核心关键词搜索。
