Invisible Man – Character introduction of Griffin

Extracts from this document...


Invisible Man - Character introduction of Griffin Invisible man is a book, which focuses mainly on one character. The title basically describes what the book is about, a Griffin who found a way to be invisible not have a cure slowly going insane, driven mad both by his affliction and a growing megalomaniac mentality. He announces a Reign of Terror, in which he plans to extort money, food and shelter from the surrounding countryside. Basically he is introduced arriving into Mrs Hall's inn and rents a parlour there. Obviously it is not possible to recognise how the man looks as he has bandages across his face and is not showing a single part of his body and was "wrapped up head to toe." ...read more.


These as well as the concealment makes the invisible man, Griffin, seem very phantom like. This also builds suspense up through the story until quite late on were it becomes dynamic and alive. The mystery of the man even gets on Mrs Halls nerve, whom at first wants to help him. At the beginning he seemed to be very quiet and secretive and wanted to be kept alone although he started talking. He acted normal but always implied that he wanted to be kept alone and undisturbed. This very intelligent and curious man is self-centred and will do anything, which will favour his further experiments. This eventually leads to malicious mad behaviour. ...read more.


His hidden character at the start is a very good idea by H.G Wells and deciding to make him invisible at the start is a very clever idea, as it bring more mystery to the man. It also makes the reader want to carry on reading, to find out what the man looks like and what he is like. He reveals Griffins main features later. Griffins develops slowly through the story. He firstly starts of calm and relaxed, but very secretive but then starts to get paranoid and angry with everyone thinking they want to find him out. This is shown in the book by exclamation marks wherever he speaks. His final stage is madness where he goes on a reign of horror, terrorising. That is what the whole book is mainly about a mad scientist who cannot control his experiment! ...read more.
