Bradley Band Neveu P.6 8/29/17 Who Watches the Watchmen? I believe that The Watchmen is portrayed in the third person point of view with an omniscient narrator, because there are many situations where the narrator sees a character’s thoughts and opinions. For the personal situations, there are there are those written in the journals and those not written in the journals. Those written in the journal give us a personal account of the actions that have usually happened throughout that day. This is shown in Dr. Malcom’s notes, when he states, “I tried to pretend it looked like a spreading tree, shadows pooled beneath it, but it didn’t” (p. 206). Here, Dr. Malcom is showing how his time with the real Rorschach has affected his point of view and has turned it into a pessimistic and skewed one. These are inner thoughts of his that would not be seen with a limited narrator. An omniscient narrator is also seen when looking through Rorschach journal, like when he writes, “They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father, or president Truman” (p. 9).
