The Invisible Man

There are a bunch of people out in the town, since this is a festival day Whit Monday. Eventually, Constable Jaffers comes to arrest the stranger. But when he and some other brave people go to the inn, they find a headless figure eating some bread and cheese.

The stranger — the invisible man — fights with the crowd and seems to be losing. Of course, this makes him totally invisible and he starts winning the fight like whoa. The invisible man starts to beat down on crowd and they all panic. Hall and the stranger started arguing about money because he had not paid his bill recently. But he told that he found some more money recently which made Mrs. Hall suspicious about his involvement in the burglary at the vicars.

In anger, Mrs. Halls wanted to know what he had been doing to her chair upstairs, and how he entered the empty room again. This made the stranger so frustrated that he revealed himself to the people at the Inn. He removed the cloth wrapped over his face with his palm.

His face became a black cavity. He stepped forward and handed her his pink shining nose. Hall took it in shock and dropped screaming and staggering back. Then he removed his spectacles, his hat, his whiskers and bandages.

The stranger was a solid figure upto the coat-collar, but nothing above at all. In came Mr. Hall, very red and determined, followed by Mr. Bobby Jaffers, the village constable. They came armed with a warrant to arrest him in case of robbery last night. Question 2: Describe the escape of the stranger from Coach and Horses Inn.

Answer: Constable Mr. Jaffer moved forward to arrest the stranger. In a moment Jaffers gripped the handless wrist and caught the invisible throat. After a small fight, the stranger surrendered, panting headless and handless.

Jaffers produced a pair of hand-cuffs to arrest him. The Stranger told that he had every body part except that he is invisible. Abruptly the figure of the stranger sat down, and before any one could realise what was being done, the slippers, socks, and trousers had been kicked off under the table. Then he sprang up again and flung off his coat in order that he became invisible.

The invisible man started beating down on the crow. Constable Jaffers fell pretty hard on his head, and it was not clear whether he was dead or just unconscious. Chapter-8 Gibbons, the amateur naturalist of the district, was lying out on the spacious open downs without a soul within a couple of miles of him. Almost dozing, he heard the sound of a man coughing, sneezing, and then swearing. Gibbons looked up, but saw no one at all. The voice continued to swear in the rich vocabulary of a cultivated man.

It grew to a climax, diminished gradually, and died away in the distance, going in the direction of Adderdean. It finally ended with a chocked sneeze. Disturbed by the strange occurrence he got up hastily and hurried down the hill towards the village. Answer: Gibbons was lying out,on the spacious open downs without any single person within a couple of miles of him, taking a peaceful nap, as if dozing.

Suddenly, he heard close to him the sound of a man coughing, sneezing and then swearing himself savagely. The sound grew to a climax, diminished again, and died away in the distance, going as it seemed to him in the direction of Adderdean. It lifted to a high and unexpected sneeze and ended. The whole phenomenon was so alarming and disturbing that his peace vanished and he hurried down the steep hills towards the village, as fast as he could go.

Chapter-9 Mr. Marvel is a tramp — a homeless, jobless guy who wanders around. Marvel wears a shabby high hat, and we first meet him considering two pairs of boots, both probably given to him as charity. When Marvel is finally convinced that there might actually be someone there, he is able to make out some bread and cheese in front of him. He knows Marvel is also an outcast, plus he promises to reward the homeless man for helping him.

Answer: Marvel was sitting with his feet in a ditch by the roadside on the way to Adderdean. He was trying on a pair of boots given to him as charity. He put the four shoes in a group and looked at them. It occurred to him that both pairs were exceedingly ugly. Thomas Marvel replied with no sign of surprise that they are charity boots. Then he realised that as he was drunk, it might have been the echo.

To prove that he was real and just invisible, the voice started throwing rocks at Marvel. When Marvel was convinced that there might be someone there, he was able to make out some bread and cheese in front of him. He knew that Marvel is an outcast, plus he promises to reward the homeless man for helping him as an invisible man is a man of power to do wonders.

Then he sneezes violently. Thomas Marvel. Thomas Marvel is a jolly old tramp with no home or job. He wanders from place to place, usually asking people for food or money. The author has unwittingly recruited him to assist the invisible man as his first visible partner.

He wears a shabby high hat, and we first meet him considering two pairs of boots, both probably given to him as charity. There is an air of abandon and eccentricity about him. He was bearded, plump and of short limbs.

The Invisible Man

He wore a furry silk hat, twine and shoelaces are a substitute for buttons at critical points of his costume. He drinks a lot and when he heard the invisible man for the first time, he thought that it was his dizziness due to drink that he sounded like this. He is a practical man as he acceded to the request of the invisible man after knowing that an invisible man is a man of power and can help him a lot. But after a while, people relaxed and went back to the festival.

Soon, though, another stranger comes to Iping. Stranger to the villagers, at least: we can recognise him as Marvel thanks to his shabby high hat. This new guy acts suspiciously around the Coach and Horses.

For instance, Huxter, the shop owner, sees this guy waiting outside a window of the inn, holding a bag. A bag! Answer: Iping was gay with decorations, and everybody was in gala dresses. Whit-Monday had been looked forward to for a month or more. By the afternoon even those who believed in the invisible man were beginning to join in little amusements. Bunting and other ladies were preparing tea, while, outside, the Sunday-school children ran races and played games.

Members of the county club, who had attended church in the morning, were splendid in badges of pink and green. Answer: A short, stout, shabbily dressed stranger entered the village from the direction of the downs. He hurriedly entered the Coach and Horses, opened the door of the parlour of the Inn. In the course of few minutes he reappeared, wiping his lips with an air of satisfaction.

He walked out of the Inn in a furitive way towards the gates of the yard, upon which the parlour window opened. Huxter, the shop owner, watching all his moves thought that the stranger was up to thieving ran out into the road to intercept the thief. As he did so, Mr. Marvel, the stranger, reappeared, carrying a big bundle in one hand and three books in another. Seeing Huxter he turned sharply to the left and began to run. Chapter Doctor Cuss and the vicar Mr.

Marvel lets the Invisible Man into the room with Cuss and Bunting. Once he does, Cuss and Bunting lock the door so that no one will interrupt them.

Hall and Henfrey are just spying on Cuss and Bunting for fun. At that moment, Huxter yells out about a thief and goes running off after the man in the shabby high hat. The people in the inn come out to see what Huxter is yelling about. They all go running after Marvel, but just like Huxter, they all get tripped. Kind of a hilarious image if you ask us.

Bunting is actually trying to cover himself in a newspaper, which a hilarious little detail that we love to picture. Everyone else, including Marvel, runs away. Naturally, the invisible man breaks every window at the inn, cuts the telegraph cable, and does some other damage just for fun. Marvel vanishing by the corner of the church wall. Marvel was seen vanishing by the comer of the church wall. Hall and two labourers ran after him.

Hall had hardly run a dozen yards before he gave a loud cry and went flying headlong sideways taking one labourer with him to the ground. A second man in pursuit was tripped by the ankle just as Huxter had been. Then, as the first labourer struggled to stand on his feet, he was kicked sideways by a blow that might have felled an ox. Question 2: Why was Mr. Cuss shouting to hold Mr. Marvel and not to drop the parcel that he was carrying?

Answer: The people in the inn came out to see what Huxter was yelling about. They saw Marvel running off and thought that he was the invisible man.

They all went running after Marvel and all get tripped. Bunting was trying to cover himself in a newspaper. Cuss ran out and joined the chase, but was kicked and thrown on the ground.

He rose again and was hit severely behind the ear. He staggered and set off back to the Coach and Horses Inn. In another moment, Mr. Cuss was back in the parlour. He told Mr. Bunting that the invisible man has gone mad and is coming back to kill them. Chapter Next time we see them, the invisible man is threatening Marvel. The invisible man is also upset that the news of all this hub-bub will be in the paper.

Marvel makes excuses like he is weak, he could make mess of his plans, he wants to die, etc. This has no effect on the invisible man. The invisible man threatens him to do as is told and not to make excuses for resignation. Marvel to resign from the post of assistant of the invisible man which the invisible man declined quickly? Answer: On the way to Bramblehurst, Mr. Marvel tried to convince the invisible man that he was not fit for the job assigned to him.

His reddish face expressed anxiety and tiredness. He told the invisible man that he was a weak miserable tool, his heart was weak, that he could have dropped any time, he had no strength for the sort of thing the invisible man want from him to do. He would, out of sheer panic and misery, mess up his plans. He wished he were dead. Question 2: What reaction did the invisible man give to Mr.

Marvel on his pleading for resignation? Answer: The invisible man pointed out to Mr.

Marvel that all his efforts to get resignation were quite ineffectual on him. He shut him up and told to do what he was supposed to do. If he insisted on the same thing again and again, he would twist the wrist of Mr. Marvel again. He finally told Mr. Marvel that he would keep his hand on his shoulder all through the village and warned not to try any foolery.

It would be the worse for him if he tried it. Marvel sighed painfully. Chapter The next day, in Port Stowe, Marvel nervously waits on a bench, and ends up chatting with an elderly mariner that is, a sailor.

The old man tells Marvel all about this amazing Invisible Man that he read about in the newspaper. The sailor thinks the story is believable because it comes equipped with names and details. He also thinks that an invisible man would make a great thief since no one could see or stop him. Does he expect to see the invisible man? In any case, the invisible man is there and starts hurting Marvel secretly. Marvel quickly covers his tracks, saying that the invisible man is just a hoax.

The sailor is annoyed at Marvel for letting him go on about this invisible man. But later, the sailor hears stories about a bunch of robberies and how people saw money just floating away.

Kemp is in his study overlooking the town of Burdock. So, looking out of his window, Kemp sees a man with a shabby high hat running down into town. Kemp thinks this might just be another fool who is afraid of the invisible man. Kemp, of course, is too scientific to believe in an invisible man.

But outside, the running man looks terrified. Everyone around freaks out, and for good reason: the invisible man is chasing after the running man. Kemp see from the window of his study? Kemp was in his study overlooking the town of Burdock. He saw a man with a shabby high hat running down the hills into the town. Kemp thought he might just be another fool who was afraid of the invisible man.

Kemp was too scientific to believe in the story of an invisible man. But outside, the running man looked terrified. Everyone around freaked out. It was shouted that the invisible man was chasing after the running man. Chapter In the town of Burdock, at a pub called The Jolly Cricketers, a bunch of people are chatting.

Suddenly, Marvel bursts into the pub, yelling for people to save him from the invisible man. The bartender hides Marvel in a backroom and an American with a gun gets ready to shoot the invisible man when he comes in the front door. The invisible man, suddenly sneaky, goes in through the back door. He begins to attack Marvel, but the other men in the pub rescue him in time.

The guy with the gun fires it carefully and is sure he hits the invisible man. He tells everyone to go feel for his invisible body. Marvel escape from the grip of the invisible man inside the kitchen of the Jolly Cricketers bar?

Answer: As the man with the beard put his revolver back in its place, people present in the bar heard Mr. Marvel squeal like a small animal. Marvel was dragged by the neck into the kitchen.

There was a scream and a clatter of pans. Marvel, head down and lugging back, was being forced to the kitchen door. Then the policeman rushed in and gripped the wrist of the invisible hand that collared Marvel. He was hit in the face and went reeling back. Soon the kitchen door opened and Marvel made a frantic effort to lodge behind it.

Then the cabman collared the invisible man. In this way Mr. Marvel, released, suddenly drooped to the ground and made an attempt to crawl behind the legs of the fighting men and got escaped. Question 2: Who was sure that he killed the invisible man? Answer: The struggle between policeman, cabman and the invisible man inside the kitchen blundered round the edge of the door opening to the yard.

The cabman suddenly whooped and got kicked under the diaphragm. Soon the others were shaken off and lost their grips which freed the invisible man. A piece of tile whizzed by the head of the policeman into the yard. At that very moment, the man with the black beard fired five bullets one after the other into the yard and a silence followed. He was sure that the invisible man was shot.

He asked for a lantern to search for the dead body of the invisible man. Kemp gets interrupted by the shots and looks out to see a crowd at the Jolly Cricketers. But his housemaid tells him that there was no one at the door. On his way to bed, after a long day of speculative philosophy, Kemp notices some blood on the floor and on the handle of his bedroom door.

The invisible man calls Kemp by his name and tells him not to panic. Of course, when an invisible man tells someone not to panic, that person panics. Kemp calms down enough to give Griffin some whiskey, clothes, and a cigar. And finally, he smokes a cigar, so the smoke outlines his mouth and throat. Griffin needs help because his partner stole his stolen money. The voice introduced itself as an invisible man. To confirm the presence, Dr.

Kemp stepped forward and his hand extended towards the bandage, met invisible fingers and recoiled in fear. The hand gripped his arm and struck at it.

He was a little younger than Kemp, and he won a medal for chemistry at University College. Kemp calms down enough to give Griffin some whiskey, clothes and a cigar. Question 2: What unusual things did Dr.

Kemp observe in his house when he came out of his study? Kemp, feeling thirsty, took a candle and went down to the dinning room. As he crossed the hall, he noticed a dark spot on the floor covering near the mat at the foot of the stairs. He touched the spot and found it sticky with the colour of dried blood. Returning upstairs he noticed the door-handle of his own room was blood-stained.

He found a mess of blood on his bed also. On the furtherside the bed clothes were depressed as if someone had been recently sitting there. Then he distinctly heard a movement across the room, near the wash-hand stand. Suddenly he saw a coiled and blood stained bandage of linen rag hanging in mid-air, between him and the wash-hand stand.

It was a bandage properly tied but quite empty. Kemp as shown in the Chapter Answer: Doctor Kemp is a scientist living in the town of Port Burdock. His house is situated near the Jolly Cricketers Pub. Kemp is cool and methodical in approach. He does not easily believe in supernatural things. Kemp has a hard time accepting the fact that his friend, whom he had not seen for years, suddenly appears uninvited and invisible, but eventually he overcomes his shock, sits down and talks with the old friend of University College.

Chapter After Griffin makes sure the bedroom is secure and after Kemp promises not to turn him in, Griffin goes to sleep. For another thing, Griffin took his bedroom. Instead, Kemp spends some time reading the newspapers from that day. The top news story is about a dangerous invisible man. Kemp wonders why Griffin was chasing that tramp.

Kemp worries that Griffin may become more unstable and dangerous. He hesitates, but eventually decides to write a note to Colonel Adye. Then he hears Griffin wake up.

Though exhausted and wounded, he examined the two windows of the bedroom, drew up the blinds, and opened the sashes to confirm that one could escape through them if necessary. Then he took in his custody the keys of the bedroom and the two dressing-room doors. Kemp closed the door softly behind him, and the key was turned and the door locked from within.

When dawn, came Kemp was still pacing up and down, trying to grasp the incredible. His servants thought that over-study had affected their master. He instructed them to lay breakfast for two in the top floor study and then to confine themselves to the basement and ground floor.

Then Dr. Question 3: What did Dr. Kemp decide to do about the invisible man? Answer: Firstly, Dr. Kemp thought it would be a breach of faith if he would inform the police about Griffin. Later, he went to a little desk and wrote a note. Kemp tells Griffin that he wants to help, but first, he needs to know his story.

Griffin was a medical student at the same time as Kemp, but Griffin switched to physics because he was interested in light. He came up with a loose theory for how to make objects invisible, but needed to figure out a method to actually do it.

Griffin left London and University College six years ago and went to Chesilstowe, where he was a teacher and a student. What he really wanted to do, though, was to continue his research into invisibility. Griffin had done all this work himself. One night, alone, Griffin figured out how to make a human invisible. So, he did the obvious thing i. What did Mr. Kemp mean by this statement and what was the object behind it?

Kemp meant that the entire people residing in qpd around Iping had come to know about the invisible man. His hiding at the parlour was no longer a secret and everyone has come to know this. And sooner or later he would be caught. Though this statement seems to be used to scare Griffin, but in reality it was meant to extract the truth from him rather it was used as a threat. Kemp, being a scientist and an old friend of Griffin really wanted to help him and for that he wanted to inquire about his invisibility.

Question 2: Which subject fascinated that invisible man and why? Answer: The Invisible man was initially a student of medicine, However, subsequently he switched over to Physics because he was fascinated by light and its wonderful characteristics. He was attracted by the marvels and miracles of that were there in the subject of Physics. He also had curiosity and a desire to find out a method to change colours of substances without changing their fundamental properties.

He also wanted to carry out a research on this topic using various principles and laws of Physics such as reflection, refraction.

All this phenomena were concerned with light and its properties. He was also enchanted by the phenomena of visibility and invisibility of objects. He had a loose theory on invisibility and he wanted to find out methodology to figure it out. It was, therefore, he was fascinated by the subject of Physics. Kemp are discussing about? Kemp and the Invisible man are involved in a deep conversations on those scientific principles.

As Griffin, the Invisible man shows with Mr. Refraction and absorption of light.

Griffin gives Mr. Kemp a long and detailed talk on those principles, as to how and why those phenomena take place and how its application can lead to visibility and invisibility of objects.

There is also a detailed talk given by the Griffin about various parts of human body made up of transparent tissues. It is because of this fact that many scientific principles are discussed in this chapter, it has been given an appropriate title.

Question 4: Did the study of medicine and knowledge about physiology, in any way, help the invisible man in his discovery of invisibility? If yes, then explain how. Answer: Yes, it seems quite so. Knowledge about Physiology acquired through study of medicine provided a lot of help in guiding Griffin, the invisible man in his discovery of invisibility.

By studying medicine, he acquired a lot of knowledge about human physiology especially the fact that all the parts of human body, barring a couple of things are made up of transparent tissues. It was this very knowledge that encouraged him and helped him to propound the theory of human invisibility and convert it into a reality along with the principles he learnt in Physics covering reflection, refraction and absorption of light.

In this way, his invisibility was really an outcome of the combination of both these knowledge acquired in medicine and Physics. Oliver, the professor. Answer: As illustrated in this chapter, Mr. Oliver is a Professor by profession but a journalist by instinct. Griffin was his student. Oliver was a scientific founder.

As described by Griffin, Oliver was a thief of ideas. As a result, he was always prying at every one whom he came into contact. It is therefore, evident, that he was not a trustworthy person even being into a holistic profession of teaching and do not form a good opinion of himself among his press and students. People would like to keep distance from him to prevent any kind of intellectual harm. Griffin continues his story: after his dad died, he moved into a cheap boardinghouse in London to continue his research.

In fact, except for his research, the whole world seemed distant and unimportant to Griffin. His research, Griffin adds, is all written down in a code in his books, except for a few parts that he chose to remember himself. Back at the boardinghouse, Griffin continued his experiments.

He made some wool invisible and then he made a neighbourhood cat invisible. Around this time, England was making some anti-vivisection laws. Check out The Island of Dr. Moreau , for the story of a scientist who is doing research on animals. Eventually, though, Griffin got annoyed by the cat and let it out. Then, as usually happens when one gives away his only friend, Griffin had a little breakdown. He started to have nightmares and was no longer interested in his work.

But he took some strychnine a drug and felt energised. He is really a terrible role model. They got into a little bit of a fight, which ended with Griffin pushing the landlord out of his room. Realising that this would lead to trouble, Griffin decided to disappear.

He sent his books off by mail to some places where he could pick them up. Then he started the process of turning himself invisible, which really hurt.

It almost makes him feel bad for that cat that he experimented on. During the process, the landlord tried to give Griffin an eviction notice, but Griffin already looked so strange that the landlord ran away. The landlord and his stepsons tried to break in, which angered Griffin so much that he planned to bum down the house. Answer: The experiment of invisibility attempted on the cat by Griffin was a great success. However, it may not be termed as a complete success.

Previously, after successfully making a piece of white wool completely invisible, which was a non-living thing, Griffin tried to experiment with the cat, which was a living thing. Question 2: Describe how did Griffin manage to protect and secure his theory of invisibility. Answer: In order to secure his theory of invisibility, he wrote the entire theory in Cipher language in three note books so that no one else could decode it and come to know about his note books along with a check book to a tramp and directed them from the nearest Post office to a house of call for letters and parcels in Great Portland Street.

Question 3: What did Griffin scare initially when he saw the landlord visiting his house along with an old Polish Jew?

He presumed that the old lady had made the complaint with the landlord about vanishing of the cat from his house and the landlord had come to enquire about it. Griffin was aware that the law of that country against vivisection was very severe and that he might be held liable for the missing cat.

He was also scared that if he is caught by the authorities, all his research and experiment would be exposed. Question 4: Why did Griffin decide to destroy all the evidence at the house? Answer: Griffin had used the house taken on rent, for his scientific experiments on invisibility.

He had converted the house into a laboratory with all kinds of equipment, gadgets, apparatus required to realise his research. However, the landlord after the brawl with Griffin, came up again with the eviction order. Griffin had neither time to reestablish his laboratory nor money to move out of that place at a very short notice.

As a result, he decided to administer the drug of invisibility on him hurriedly and became invisible.

And to prevent exposure of his acts, research laboratory, he decided to and destroy all the evidence. Chapter Griffin continues his story: While he was still pretty excited to be invisible, he realised that invisibility had some drawbacks. Describe the meeting between Marvel and the Invisible Man.
