The Jungle is told in third-person point-of-view from the perspective of an omniscient narrator. Occasionally, the narration switches to second person for literary effect.
The Jungle is primarily narrated in past tense, although it occasionally slips into present tense, which most scholars believe is simply the effect of hasty writing and poor editing.
The Jungle refers to a central metaphor in the novel: capitalist society as a jungle in which people are either predator or prey.
