Disgrace was written in third person

Disgrace was written in third person. And as a third person narrator, the voice telling the story does not take part in the novel. Though the narrator is successful at revealing David’s thoughts and emotions, he fails to reveal the thoughts and emotions of the other characters. Everything comes from David’s perspective, even if he’s not the one actually telling the story.
From the onset of the novel David is a very complex man who finds his pleasure in women. But ‘disgrace’ befalls him when he has an affair with his student. Unwilling to show remorse for his actions, he is dismissed from his position as Professor. Whilst David is living with Lucy this is where his perspective of life changes. In the course of time, Lurie begins to experience an internal change of perspectives as on his relation to animals, nature and women.
