An omniscient narrator is an all-knowing narrator who is aware of the thoughts and feelings of all the characters of the story. Omniscient narration usually applies to fiction rather than to drama. Keeping this idea in mind, how is the chorus different from a modern-day omniscient narrator?

    The chorus in Antigone differs in a key way from a modern-day omniscient narrator. Unlike an omniscient narrator, the chorus is not an all-knowing entity. Instead, it learns what happens next in the plot of the play along with the audience.


    The chorus only knows what the audience knows, and when the audience learns it, instead of a chorus that knows all thoughts and feelings.
