The novel Jubilee, which tells the story of a group of African Americans before, during, and after the Civil War, is written in the third-person omniscient point of view. From this perspective, the reader is able to know the thoughts and feelings of all the characters. Although action may focus on one or two people, no one person is telling the story. The third-person omniscient point of view is particularly effective in a novel like Jubilee, in which there are many characters and which spans several decades of time.
