   schema:reviewBody ""In this study, H. William Rice illuminates the mystery that is Ralph Ellison - the author of one complex, important novel who failed to complete his second and a black intellectual who remained notably reticent on political issues during the desegregation of his native South. Rice reads both Invisible Man and the posthumously published Juneteenth as novels that focus on the political uses of language. He explores Ellison's concept of the novel, set forth in the author's two collections of essays, as an inherently political form of art. Additionally, he carefully considers the political context that undoubtedly affected Ellison's work and thought: a world and a time rocked to its foundation by such revolutionary actors as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Rice guides his reader to a greater understanding of Ralph Ellison, his oeuvre, and the American novel."--Jacket." ;
