Adam Bede is written from a third-person omniscient perspective. When the unmistakably male narrator comments about life, writing, characters, or events in the novel, he occasionally uses the pronoun I or we. Although not a character in the story as such, the narrator speaks as if he has known Adam Bede later in life.
Adam Bede is written primarily in the past tense. When the narrator addresses the reader or speaks generally about life and literature, he sometimes shifts to the present tense.
The title Adam Bede is name of the novel's protagonist, Adam Bede, whose sorrows lead him eventually to find compassion and love.
