Map of Kwinana on Nicholas Royle’s brilliant substitution of telepathic narrator for omniscient narrator works admirably as a definition of the narrative voice in Trollope’s novels.13 Trollope has, strictly speaking, no concept of the unconscious, at least in the Freudian sense. He grants his characters, for the most part, a spontaneous access to every corner of their own minds. Qualifications of that assertion will be examined later. The narrator, or, as l should rather calI it, the telepathic narrative voice, knows what they know and can speak for that knowledge. TIle sign that that voice has been transmuted, transcoded, translated, into written language is the use of the past tense. The first sentence of the novel has the phrase said Mary Walker, not says Mary Walker. Map of Kwinana 2016.
