When we talk about voice we usually talk about the sound and feel of a characters persona as revealed in language. Is it familiar enough? Heated enough with emotion? Does it sound like the character? Voice is that, but voice is also more than that. What we are really talking about when we talk about voice is the language used to tell the story and to whom it belongs. Most novels will employ three voices to do the job of storytelling. A flaneur wanders through the fictional world, looking left and looking right and reporting and commenting in a manner detached from the limitations of a particular character. An objective observer voice summarizes action and delivers the nuts and bolts of the story in an efficient, neutral manner. As they say, sometimes the character just has to walk across the room. The free, indirect discourse voice takes us inside the head and heart of the character. This voice sounds most like the character and is most revealing of the way that character is responding emotionally to story events. In this presentation, well look at multiple examples of these three voices in action, drawing from mainstream writers such as Elizabeth Strout, Charles Baxter, and Miranda July, as well as genre fiction writers such as Stephen King and Neil Gaiman.
