A Passage to India
Analysis: Narrator Point of View
Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?
The narrator weaves seamlessly between different characters' points of view in its attempt to give a multi-faceted account of events. The narrator tends to speak with authority on the characters, explaining in great detail the characters' psychology and cultural background. The narrator seems almost god-like, particularly when discussing the characters' diverse religious experiences with ease.
