John Dos Passos as a modernist writer entertains the reader during telling his stories. In an excellent way he uses camera-eye technique to tell what he grasps in reality. Passos more than a realist novelist shows characters and urban life. In The Three Soldiers, Passos was an ambulance driver in the First World War and mirrors the reality. He is picturing characters feeling, attitudes, flee, wound and ambitions. In Manhattan Transfer, Passos lives the city and reveals his experiences about urban life. He considers city as protagonist and takes its pictures and changes during thirty years. He tells every details of the city like statue of liberty, flag, streets and mechanical inventions. As a result, real expressions react with the soul of the receiver and drive him/her to continue reading his works. This paper argues the use of camera-eye technique in Passos’s two novels The Three Soldiers and Manhattan Transfer.
