    1. Very helpful for cultural context, as well as a good starting place for research topic ideas concerning the Invisible Man-- full of useful bibliographies.

    2. We only used some of the articles in this to supplement the reading of Invisible Man, but what we did use was useful from a prior knowledge standpoint.
