The Invisible Man is the third book in the H.G. Wells Trilogy of language-illustrated classic novels.

Description

The MCT edition of The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael’s “language illustrations”—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page.

Michael writes:

The Invisible Man is reminiscent of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, published in 1886, and of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, first published anonymously in 1818. These books were written at a time when science was making dramatic strides forward, challenging traditional ideas and inspiring profound ideas about what might become possible. In each novel, a scientist’s work produces a monster. Also in each novel, we see a vivid story of how science/power corrupts the individual who possesses it. Like Stevenson’s monster, 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.”
