I felt like the writing style is dificult to follow. I had to read slow to make sure I was understanding what exactly the narrator was saying and implying. (maybe I was just tired) But I am glad for Spark Notes.

It seems to me that the narrator feels invisible because of his skin color, but sometimes gets confused between his analogy and reality. He seems off. He almost kills a man for insulting him, but stops assuming the man sees himself being beaten by thin air. Yet the reason they were fighting was that the man saw him and insulted him.

This may be a tricky one.

I agree Kelley.

I remember this now. I read it in high school.
