A Month in the Country is written in a first person narrative from Thomas Birkin's perspective. Throughout this, we are able to hear Birkin's thoughts and perspectives. The first person perspective allows the reader to see Oxgodby and the people there through Birkin's eyes as well as to see the painting he is uncovering through him. This allows the reader to identify with Birkin.
