1. In Ellison's "Battle Royal," how is the main character invisible to the people around him? What caused him to be this way?
2. How do you feel the battle royal could be symbolic to the character's life or society as a whole?
3. Was the character following in his grandfather's footsteps. Did this make him a "traitor"?
4. How does the character see his community/grandfather/himself as the brass-alloy tokens that he reached for in the battle?
