The Invisible Man, Paperback / softback Book

The Invisible Man Paperback / softback

Edited by Nicole Lobdell, Nancee Reeves

Paperback / softback

Description

The Invisible Man stands out as possessing one of the most complicated heroes, or perhaps anti-heroes, inliterature.

Griffin is not a naive dreamer such as Moreau's Pendick or a hapless victim of circumstanceslike the unnamed narrator of The War of the Worlds.

He is a man of great genius and great faults. Perhapsclosest in character to the time traveler, the invisible man wants to the change the world through hisinvention.

Griffin's genius, however, is selfish-no one profits from his experiments, not even himself.

Athoroughly unlikeable character defined by impulsiveness, arrogance, rudeness, and, at times, violence,Griffin is a man of the late-nineteenth century-he is a man of the future.

The Invisible Man is not only acommentary on the great spirit of invention that elevated the nineteenth century but also a warning againstthe eugenic and self-interested policies that almost destroyed the twentieth century.
