  1. 1. THE INVISIBLE MAN LESSON 5 BY PRATYUSH
  2. 2. Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) Herbert George Wells was born in 1866 in Bromley, England into a family where there was little money to spare; his father ran a small shop and played cricket professionally and his mother worked as a housekeeper. The family’s financial situation meant that Wells had to work from the age of fourteen to support himself through education. His success at school won him a free place to study at a college of science in London, after which he became a science teacher. His poor health made life difficult, though, and he struggled to keep his full-time job while trying to write in his spare time.
  3. 3. MAIN EVENTS OF CHAPTER 5  Mrs. Bunting, the vicar’s wife, wakes up at the sound of bare feet walking through her house.  She wakes her husband and the two watch and listen as a candle is lit and papers are rustled in the study.
  4. 4.  When they hear the telltale clink of money, Rev. Bunting rushes into the study with a raised poker, but the room appears to be empty.  Their money disappears and at one point they hear a sneeze in the hallway but are unable to locate or see the intruder.
  5. 5. NOTES  Due to the necessity of running about naked, Griffin has caught a cold, which he is unable to completely hide. His sneezes begin to give him away even though people don’t yet understand what they are hearing. In robbing the Buntings, Griffin also sets himself up for accusations and criminal charges. Thus when his presence is discovered, it is inevitable that people will begin to expect the worst and will be concentrating on apprehending him rather than helping him. .
