A master of poetic devices, Ralph Ellison incorporates numerous symbols and archetypes universal symbols into his novel, each providing a unique perspective on the narrative and supporting the dominant themes of invisibility and identity. Dreams and visions generally symbolize the power of the subconscious mind.
