Transcript of Point of View

Point of View First Person Third Person
Limited-Omniscient Second Person Objective Third Person
Omniscient "I" or "we" serves as the narrator of the piece The narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of all of the characters in the story The author tells the story, using third person, but is limited to reporting what the characters say or do; the author does not interpret their behavior or tell us their private thoughts or feelings (like a newspaper) The narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of only a single character, while the other characters are presented only externally The narrator tells the story to another character using "you"; the story is being told through the addressee's point of view Her hair is sculpted in ringlets and pulled up from the nape of her neck.
