The story is written in the third-person omniscient point of view, giving us knowledge of what the characters think and feel, as well as what they say and do. The omniscient view, in contrast to the third-person limited point of view, takes us inside the characters, revealing more than one could hear or observe at the scene. For example, in Part 7 of the story, we are told what Pahom dreams. Also, in Part 2 of the story, we are told what the peasants thought.
