The Invisible Man

             "Conflicts Between Group and Individuals.
             Hammond once said, "It is perhaps difficult for a twentieth-century reader to recapture the sense of excitement which must have been experienced by those who read the Invisible Man for the first time on its publication as a serial in Pearson's Weekly in the summer of 1897 and as a book in the autumn of that year."" Yet, to a contemporary reader, it is also apparent that this novel does not purely narrate a story about a selfish young scientist-a hunter who is hunted at last. We can capture the author's profound thoughts if we look through the disguise of the science fiction color. Its thesis is the conflicts between group and the individual and the conflicts begin as soon as the secret of invisibility becomes public.
             The Invisible Man The Invisible Man, by H.G. Wells, is composed of many small themes that combined to form two major themes in the novel. Some of the minor themes are acting before thinking and denial of unexplainable events. It is based on the two major themes of science experiments gone wrong and the ignorance of society. The most important theme in the novel was the experiment that Griffin, the invisible man, was working and it was not going exactly as planned. The way that the experiment went bad was not by accident; instead it was Griffin who had made the mistake of turning himself invisible. The reason that the invisible man had for becoming invisible was that he was suspected as to be a vivesectionalist and he did not want to be punished for it. The reason for the final decision of becoming invisible was that Griffin thought there were many advantages. He finds out after becoming invisible that the whole thing was not thought through enough and being invisible had many more disadvantages than what he was expecting. This was an example of Griffin acting upon something before adding up all of the consequences of his actions.
