Modern American, 1914-present: Literature
Ralph Ellison, 1914-1994
By Paula Caudle, Naomi Lancaster, and Andy Stamper
Students, University of North Carolina at Pembroke

From this point on, Ellison followed a life of writing in which he earned many awards. His best known work is the novel Invisible Man , though he also wrote several short stories. He began a second novel that has recently been published posthumously. Students at Rutgers, New York University, and Bard College were lucky enough to have Ellison as a professor. Ellison died on April 16, 1994, of pancreatic cancer, but he continues to be published. In 1996, Flying Home: And Other Stories was published after being discovered in his home.
Ellison is often criticized for not using his writing as a propaganda tool to elevate the "black man in society." For instance, critic Richard Corliss writes, "The unfashionable fact is that Ellison's writing was too refined, elaborate, to be spray painted on a tenement wall. He was a celebrator as much a denouncer of the nation that bred him." Ellison defended himself by saying "I wasn't and am not concerned with injustice but with art." In Invisible Man, Ellison depicts a black individual searching for his identity or place in society. For example, when the young black men are in the Battle Royal, they are forced to watch a nude white woman dance. The white observers abuse these young black men for not watching and also abuse them for watching. These black fellows do not know how they are expected to behave; therefore, they do not know their place in society. Ellison has the characters in this novel deal with the problem of incest, which is not a racial problem, but a social problem. Both the black man Trueblood and the white man Mr. Norton grapple with the problem of having sexual feelings for their daughters. They realize that these feelings are unnatural and that the act of incest is not socially acceptable.

edit Early life
Ralph Ellison, named after the preacher-philosopher Emerson, was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Lewis Alfred Ellison and Ida Millsap. Research by Lawrence Jackson, one of Ellison's biographers, has established that he was born a year earlier than had been previously thought. He had one brother named Herbert Millsap Ellison, who was born in 1916. Lewis Alfred Ellison, a small-business owner and a construction foreman, died when Ralph was three years old. Many years later, Ellison would find out that his father hoped he would grow up to be a poet. In 1933, Ellison entered the

The Beat Generation Writers from the Beat Era of American Literature
Ralph Ellison from Invisible Man
The American writer Ralph Waldo Ellison , b. Oklahoma City, Okla., Mar. 1, 1914, achieved international fame with his first novel, Invisible Man (1952). He was influenced early by the myth of the frontier, viewing the United States as a land of "infinite possibilities." The close-knit black community in which he grew up supplied him with images of courage and endurance and an interest in music. From 1933 to 1936, Ellison attended Tuskegee Institute, intent upon pursuing a career in music; his readings in modern literature, however, interested him in writing. In 1936 he moved to New York City, met the novelist Richard Wright, and became associated with the Federal Writers' Project, publishing short stories and articles in such magazines as New Challenge and New Masses . These early details of his life, set down in Shadow and Act (1964), a collection of political, social, and critical essays, enhance an understanding of Invisible Man . The influences of the frontier tradition, the black community, and Ellison's interest in music combined to create the richly symbolic, metaphorical language of the novel, as displayed in the Rhinehart and Mary Rambo episodes. Its theme, the human search for identity, also reflects Ellison's early interest in Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, and Henry David Thoreau and his later debt to Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Andre Malraux, and Wright. Invisible Man won the National Book Award in 1953. Since 1970, Ellison has been Albert Schweitzer Professor of the Humanities at New York University and has lectured extensively on black folk culture....

8. Ralph Waldo Ellison
A short biography about Ralph Ellison and some links.
The #1 Site for African American Literature
Ralph Waldo Ellison, born March 1, 1914, in Oklahoma City, OK; died of cancer, April 16, 1994, in New York, NY; son of Lewis Alfred (a construction worker and tradesman) and Ida (Millsap) Ellison; married Fanny McConnell, July, 1946. Ralph Waldo Ellison, named after the preacher-philosopher Emerson, was born in Oklahoma in 1914. His father [Lewis Alfred (a construction worker and tradesman)] died when he was three years old, and he was brought up by his mother, who worked as domestic help in white households in order to support herself and her two sons.
Ellison was highly regarded by both the literary and academic worlds. He was Fellow of the American Academy in Rome from 1955 to 1957 and on his return held several visiting professorships; latterly being Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities at New York University. He received the United States Medal of Freedom in 1969, became Chevalier de l'ordre des Arts et Lettres in 1970, and received the National Medal of Arts in 1985. Ralph Ellison died in 1994 [of cancer, April 16, 1994], survived by his wife of forty-eight years [married Fanny McConnell, July, 1946]. In his obituary, The Independent declared him "a great gentleman, indeed a noble man, and the remarkable mythologising author of ... the great American Negro novel."

    Biography of Ralph Ellison (1914-1994)
    Study Guides and Essays by Ralph Ellison Invisible Man Ralph Ellison Ralph Waldo Ellison was born March 1, 1914 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Lewis Alfred and Ida Millsap Ellison. At the beginning of this century, Oklahoma had not been a state for very long and was still considered a part of the frontier. Lewis and Ida Ellison had each grown up in the South to parents who had been slaves. The couple moved out west to Oklahoma hoping the lives of their children would be fueled with a sense of possibility in this state that was reputed for its freedom. Though the prejudices of Texas and Arkansas soon encroached upon Oklahoma, the open spaces and fighting spirit of the people whom Ellison grew up among did provide him with a relatively unbiased atmosphere. The death of Lewis Ellison in 1917 left Ida, Ralph, and his younger brother Herbert quite poor. To support the family, Ida worked as a domestic and stewardess at the Avery Chapel Afro-Methodist Episcopal Church. The family moved into the parsonage and Ellison was brought into close contact with the minister's library. Literature was a destined medium for Ellison, whose father named him after Ralph Waldo Emerson and hoped that he would be a poet. His enthusiasm for reading was encouraged over the years of his youth by his mother bringing books and magazines home for him from the houses she cleaned. In addition, a black episcopal priest in the city challenged the white custom of barring blacks from the public library and the custom was overturned. Ellison's horizons were broadened to a world outside his own sheltered life in Oklahoma City, by the many books now available to him in the library.

Ralph Waldo Ellison
Born: March 1, 1913
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA Died: April 16, 1994
New York, New York, USA Occupation(s): Writer Magnum opus: Invisible Man Ralph Waldo Ellison (March 1, 1913 – April 16, 1994) was an African-American scholar and writer who is considered to be one of the most important writers in twentieth century African-American literature. Ellison is best known for Invisible Man, his monumental novel on the state of race relations in America, which won the National Book Award in 1953. In addition to Invisible Man, Ellison also wrote a number of essays on social, political, and literary issues which were collected in the publications Shadow and Act (1964) and Going to the Territory (1986). Along with Richard Wright and James Baldwin , Ellison is considered to be one of the most important African-American writers of the latter twentieth century, and Invisible Man in particular is considered one of the most influential American novels of the twentieth century as well as one of the most comprehensive portrayals of the Black experience in America ever written. Among the African-American writers of his time, Ellison stands out as a unique and at times idiosyncratic figure; although a supporter of civil rights, Ellison was deeply skeptical of the Civil Rights Movement , and he was a vocal critic of both black and white ideologues who attempted to simplify or gloss over the deep complexities of American racism. It is due in large part to Ellison's complex and controversial views that his works, with their intellectual depth and realism, have survived much better than those of many of his more idealistic contemporaries. His works remain some of the most important and widely-read in all of twentieth century American literature.

African-American History Ralph Ellison Born in Oklahoma on March 1, 1914, Ralph Waldo Ellison is best known nationally and internationally for his work, Invisible Man (1952), for which he won a National Book Award for fiction in 1953. Ellison, a novelist, sculptor, amateur photographer, electrician, actor and huntsman, taught at several American colleges and universities. It was while as a student working in the library at Tuskegee University that he began to explore the world of literature. In 1936, Ellison met Richard Wright, who encouraged him to write. Ellison's writing career began with a short story, "Hymie Bull." It was when he moved to New York during the Harlem Renaissance, that Ellison wrote the critically acclaimed Invisible Man. Finding the stereotypes placed on African Americans in America unacceptable, Ellison refused to depict them as such in his work. At the time of his death on April 16, 1994, Ellison had not yet published his second novel, begun in 1958 and lost in a fire at his summer home in Massachusetts.

    Ellison, Ralph
    Ellison, Ralph Hughes , who became his mentor, and became friends with Richard Wright , who radicalized his thinking. Ellison's earliest published writings were reviews and stories in the politically radical New Masses magazine. His literary reputation rests almost completely on one novel, Invisible Man (1952). A classic of American literature, it draws upon the author's experiences to detail the harrowing progress of a nameless young black man struggling to live in a hostile society. Ellison also published two collections of essays, Shadow and Act (1964) and Going to the Territory Juneteenth, which was published in 1999. See R. G.

17. Haber's Art Reviews: Ralph Ellison's Silence
An Essay by John Haber from New York City.
The Invisibility of Ralph Ellison
John Haber
in New York City
Modernism, Hatred, and American Culture
I was startled when Ralph Ellison died. The writer of a modern classic about burning hatred had still been alive through all the cold, bitter winter of 1994. I had never wondered why Invisible Man remained its author's first and only novel, and I was stunned to have to be reminded how greatly I admire it.
Accepting silence
How easy it was to accept Ellison's silence. We are all too used to artists who simply give up or destroy themselves, just as we are used to young black voices never penetrating below 125th Street. A gay man has made silence, his sewn lips , an emblem of himself. What incentive was there to do more, especially in the left-wing avant garde of midcentury urban America, to which Ellison and his subject alike belong? Joyce in his own exile had made silence, patience, and cunning part of the myth of modernism. We are even more used to blacks dying spiritually, or all too literally, well before their time, as if to create their only identity out of the waste they are supposed to become anyhow. Ellison did not stay to see teenage boys giving up their lives for cheap jewelry or a badly timed smile, but he describes that self-destruction all the same. The eerily lit cell from which his invisible man speaks is like a parody of a real torture chamber, where the black man can be proud at last to have no tormentor but his own laughter. All the more respect is due a writer who keeps going, even if for Ellison it meant turning his back on America's literature as much as on its violence. Like invisible man, he refused society's game; we can be grateful that, unlike his hero, Ellison would not play games at his own and our expense either. His reward of sorts has been a polite niche in survey courses on African-American fiction.

Skip Navigation Table of Contents Search All Entries Home
Born to Lewis Alfred and Ida Millsap Ellison on March 1, 1913, in Oklahoma City, then along with Kansas City a hotbed of musical creativity, Ralph Ellison showed at an early age the interest in jazz and other modern art forms that would be reflected throughout his life in literature. He attended the Frederick Douglass School in Oklahoma City, going on to the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama in 1933, pursuing studies in music but also encountering the work of T. S. Eliot and other Modernist writers. His stories, essays and articles from the later 1930s and early 1940s were partially rooted in materials stemming from his interviews with people in Harlem for the Writers' Project. So too was his work toward a novel, Invisible Man (1952), which announced him as a major figure in American letters and won the National Book Award for 1953. This book also took shape, however, in counterpoint to Wright's earlier Native Son (1940), which seemed to Ellison too fatalistically absolute in its determinism, and insufficiently representative of African American experience.
