Perspective and Narrator

The events of Fight Club are described by an unnamed first-person narrator, which serves to protect the intimate relationship between the narrator and Tyler—something a third-person narrator would reveal too soon. However, the narration frequently switches into second person, which pulls readers into the story and illustrates the narrator's detachment from the real world.

Tense

Fight Club is narrated in both the past and present tenses.

About the Title

The narrator and his friend Tyler Durden start a secret, all-male group of bare-knuckle brawlers and call it fight club.
