During the last fifteen years, Böll has published a prodigious number of novels and long narratives, employing a variety of narrative approaches. His most recent novels, Billard um halbzehn (published in 1959), Ansichten eines Clowns (1963), and Gruppenbild mit Dame (1971), reveal his experimentation in narrative form and present strikingly different alternatives for narrative expression. This paper is concerned with one particular aspect of such presentation, the impact of narrative perspective on character portrayal.
