Point of View

Amanda Coplin tells her novel “The Orchardist” in the third-person omniscient perspective. The third-person omniscient perspective allows Coplin to do two primary things. First, it allows her to examine the lives of multiple characters in the novel, including primary, secondary, and even tertiary characters. For example, while much of the novel focuses on Talmadge, Della, and Angelene, other sections are devoted to Caroline and to Clee. This allows for greater personal depth among characters, and in the plot. Secondly, the omniscient aspect of the narrative allows the reader great insight into characters and their actions, when other characters are themselves not aware of everything going on. The reader is given something of a bird’s eye view of events as they unfold, and of the words and actions of each of the characters.
