Hello community.

I was reading the back of Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. And I'm confused about this sentence:

First published in 1952 and immediately hailed as a masterpiece, Invisible Man is one of those rare novels that have changed the shape of American literature.

Shouldn't have be changed to has so the sentence reads:

First published in 1952 and immediately hailed as a masterpiece, Invisible Man is one of those rare novels that has changed the shape of American literature.

Thank you.

AvangiThat link I gave you is worthless!
Are you sure?

I visited the link and found the section on...

"When a relative pronoun is used as a subject of an adjective clause"

...to be closely related, if not almost exactly, to what you have explained here:

From the website you link me to:


Mary is one of the students who have done honor to the college.

(Adjective clause modifies the plural noun "students." "Students" is the antecedent of "who."

In the above sentence Mary is just one of the students. So at least two students have done honor to the college.

Compare that to:

Mary is the only one of our students who has achieved national recognition.

In this case, "one," not "students," is the antecedent of "who."

Compare to the sentence above:

Of all our students, Mary is the only one who has achieved national recognition.

(Double post sorry.)

Oh well, not completely useless.
I'm glad you got something out of it!
It was not what you'd call a comprehensive treatment. Emotion: shake - A.
