The title suggests a rewriting of Jack’s life. The novel is also called My Brother Jack because of the fact that the author George Johnston, portrayed as David had a brother named Jack, with whom he shared a good relationship with and was

    “Soldiering is 99% boredom and 1% of sheer terror”, a civil war soldier wrote this to his wife in a letter and since then the composition of war has not changed. So, what did the soldiers do in those periods of boredom? Well, especially for the men in the frontlines, who were far from any form of entertainment, writing letters, diaries and poems were some of the few available options.

    Ralph Ellison's interest in effective black leadership is directly reflected in Invisible Man. The characterization of Bledsoe in the beginning of the story is that of a ruthlessly self-serving black leader (McSweeny). In chapter five, a "mythic model" for black leadership is outlined in the eulogy of the founder of the college, which is given by Homer A. Barbee (McSweeny). While Invisible Man is residing in the apartment of Mary Rambo, she drills into his head the importance of leadership and responsibility

However, Oscar Wilde creates Jack as the ingénue
