The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers

  

by Alexandre Dumas

Analysis: Narrator Point of View

Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?

Third Person (Objective)

This reflects the plot-driven nature of the tale. Although most of the action focuses on D’Artagnan, there are quite a few chapters that concern other characters. While the narrator is omniscient in that s/he knows everyone’s backgrounds and personal histories, s/he never intrudes nor does s/he ever directly reveal characters’ thoughts and feelings.
