The passive voice is a grammatical construction(specifically, a voice). The noun or noun phrase that would be the object of an active sentence (such as ‘our troops defeated the enemy’) appears as the passive voice (e.g. the enemy was defeated by our troops).
The subject of a sentence or clause featuring the passive voice denotes the recipient of the action (the patient) rather than the performer (the agent).
