Invisibility and Namelessness

"I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me." (Ellison 1)

I think that the opening paragraph of the prologue was an excellent way to begin this novel. I think it really grabs the reader because we can all relate to it. At some point in our lives, we have all felt invisible, and this opening paragraph relates this sense of invisibility that we have all felt. This idea of invisibility relates to the antagonist's namelessness because by going unnoticed and unknown, a name does not matter. If people are just looking through you, why would they notice a name?
