Ralph Ellison in Progress
January 26, 2011
Adam Bradley B.A. ’96 surveys the expansive geography of Ellison’s unfinished second novel while revisiting the more familiar, but often misunderstood, territory of Invisible Man. He works from the premise that understanding Ellison’s process of composition imparts important truths not only about the author himself but about race, writing, and American identity.
