Summary
Sundquist examines the cultural and social context woven through Ellison's novel, where episodes in the novel are clearly drawn from (or meant to reflect on) historical events or institutions. These selections include speeches, essays, folktales, historical analyses, and other cultural documents that Ellison used in "Invisible Man" to refer to African American events and traditions which shaped his narrator's life
