Arrow of God Narrator Point of View

By Chinua Achebe

Narrator Point of View

Third Person (Omniscient)

The narrator has the god-like ability to see into the minds of every character in the book. It jumps from one person's head to another's, often within the same chapter. The story is primarily about Ezeulu, and we spend more time in his head than any other character's head, but the narrator can conveniently pick and choose any character's point of view.
