The Invisible Man Awe and Amazement Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

In the morning he had still been simply a legend, a terror; in the afternoon, by virtue chiefly of Kemp's drily worded proclamation, he was presented as a tangible antagonist, to be wounded, captured, or overcome (26.3)


When people don't know what the Invisible Man is, he's a source of terror and amazement. Once they know that he's just a man, people realize that he can be dealt with. It seems like the unknown is the biggest source of awe.
