Product Description
An analysis of Ralph Ellison’s short story “Battle Royal,” a chapter from his novel Invisible Man, including its themes, plot, climax, recognition, reversal, protagonists, antagonists, symbolism, and point of view. Some teachers overlook the fact that one powerful way Ellison shows that in the American South of the 1930s and 1940s African Americans were “invisible” (that is, when whites looked at them they did not see human beings but a stereotype) is by never giving the protagonist of his novel a name. His is never said at any point in the novel so the protagonist is not only invisible, but he is also nameless. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is filled with such little-known details. It is suitable for a homework assignment or as an in-class activity. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
