Abstract

Abstract:

Considering "invisibility" as both subject matter and aestheticizing mode of experience, this essay uses the case studies of two American novels—Teju Cole's Open City and Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man—to explore how a culturally specific, racially charged subject is mapped outward to occupy a broader aesthetic realm.
