Invisible Man is a social commentary on the racism that occurs in the rural south and the north in the 1960's as the main character is coming of age. There are vivid descriptions of violence incurred on the protagonist and the antagonist is society at large as well as many of the characters that the main character encounters. There is a strong active sense of the stream of consciousness coming from the main character. The main character is angry at the world for not seeing him as an educated man but as an ignorant man. He goes into detail with the metaphor of being invisible because he is invisible to himself and society at large.
