About this item

La obra cumbre de Ralph Ellison es una feroz visión de la sociedad estadounidense durante los primeros años del siglo XX.

Considerada la obra cumbre de Ralph Ellison y una de las cien mejores novelas de lengua inglesa del siglo XX, esta novela es el relato en primera persona de quien se describe a sí mismo como un «hombre invisible», no por una anormal condición fisiológica, sino porque la sociedad permanece ciega ante él; se niega a verlo.
Ellison desgrana así, desde el presente oscuro, «bajo tierra», del protagonista, las preocupaciones sociales e intelectuales de su tiempo con crudeza y sensibilidad. De ello resulta una dura crítica tejida con poesía e inteligencia, ganadora del National Book Award de ficción en 1953.
Saul Bellow dijo sobreEl hombre invisible...
«Un libro de primerísimo orden, una novela superba.»


Invisible Man is a milestone in American literature, a book that has continued to engage readers since its appearance in 1952. A first novel by an unknown writer, it remained on the bestseller list for sixteen weeks, won the National Book Award for fiction, and established Ralph Ellison as one of the key writers of the century. The nameless narrator of the novel describes growing up in a black community in the South, attending a Negro college from which he is expelled, moving to New York and becoming the chief spokesman of the Harlem branch of "the Brotherhood", and retreating amid violence and confusion to the basement lair of the Invisible Man he imagines himself to be. The book is a passionate and witty tour de force of style, strongly influenced by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Joyce, and Dostoevsky.
