"I am an invisible man.... I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids- and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me".
Poet and writer Kate Camp returns to discuss another classic work of literature.
This week it's Ralph Ellison's pioneering 1952 novel Invisible Man, a work that (to use the words on the Ralph Ellison Monument in Upper Manhattan) "...details the struggles of a young African-American man in a hostile society". It's a book that seems even more pertinent after the events of the past few weeks.
