Publisher Description

The Invisible Man was first published as a novel in 1897 after being serialized in Pearson’s Weekly that same year. It was written at a time when science was making dramatic strides forward—challenging traditional ideas and inspiring profound ideas about what would become possible. It is the story of a brilliant scientist whose experimental work goes wrong, descending him into cruelty and evil. H.G. Wells’s monster is a transformation of the scientist himself, and the inevitable questions arise about the price of progress and about the need for knowledge to be developed in terms that are moral and human.

Without distracting from the story, examples of  the author's use of language, grammar, and poetic techniques are highlighted by Michael Clay Thompson. The glossary defines words that may be unfamiliar.
