POV Review
What is Point of View?
Point of view is the way a story is written or the perspective from which a story is told
Point of view is a story from the way the narrator sees it.
it influences the plot
affects how much information and the type of information revealed to the reader
if not used appropriately, a reader can be confused
and this is important because..
First Person?

Second Person ?

Third Person ?

What are the three types of third person point of view?
In the Limited point of view, the reader is "limited" to the thoughts and emotions of only
one
character. For all the
other characters, you only observe their outer actions and words.
Little Red Riding Hood opened the door to Grandma’s room and stepped inside. She sniffed lightly. There was a strange smell in the room that she didn’t like. She squinted at Grandma. Why was the room so dark?

“Hello, my dear. Come closer.” Grandma patted the bedspread beside her.

Grandma’s voice was husky. Well, she was sick, after all.


Objective point of view means that the reader doesn’t see any character’s inner thoughts and feelings. Instead, the reader is only witness to outer actions and dialogue.

“Hello, my dear. Come closer.”

Grandma patted the bedspread beside her. Little Red moved closer to the bed.

The Wolf patted the bedspread beside him. The girl needed to be closer so she couldn’t avoid the attack. The wolf’s mouth watered in anticipation of this juicy snack.



I opened the door to Grandma’s room and stepped inside. I squinted at Grandma in the dark room.
“Hello, my dear. Come closer.” She patted the bedspread beside her.
I moved closer to the bed until I could see her better.
“What big eyes you have today, Grandma.”
“All the better to see you with, my dear.”
Third Person
Third Person means that the reader is not the character, but experiences the story as an unseen observer. In other words, the narrator is outside of the story. This mode is distinguished by the use of “he”, “she,” "they," or the character's' names.


Let's take a look at the three types of "Third Person Point of View!"

Time for some
Active Practice!


In your groups, you will read parts of a fairy tale told in different points of view. Decide whether they are told in first person, third person limited, third person objective, or third person omniscient point of view. Tell which character's or characters' thoughts are revealed. Provide evidence for your answer.
REMEMBER: Do not consider the dialogue in the quotation marks when deciding the point of view used.

Let's practice
There was once a little old woman who lived in a little house in the edge of a wood with her husband. She would have been very happy except for one thing -- she so desired to have a child and she wished for one very much.
One day, when the little old woman was baking gingerbread, she thought, "How wonderful it would be if I could have a little boy." As she thought this, she cut a cake in the shape of a little boy and put it into the oven.
As soon as the oven door was opened, the little gingerbread boy jumped out, and began to run away.

The story is told from which point of view?

How do you know?
Use text evidence.
How would the story change if the narrator were using third person objective? How about third person omniscient?
And other fairy tales!
Third Person Limited

Third Person Objective

Third Person Omniscient
Everyone thinks they know the story of "Hansel and Gretel." Here is the real story! First, I am not a witch! I did not want a candy house to catch children- this house was just the only one left! Those three pigs got the last good ones! It did look pretty, but everyone wanted to eat it! Cats! Birds! Mice! Even my dog! I was always fixing my house. I did not mind until those kids came along!
What point of view is being used to tell the story? Who is telling the story? How do you know?

One morning Mama Bear got up early and made a big, steamy pot of porridge with honey and a pinch of cinnamon and two pawfuls of raisins in it.

Soon Papa Bear and Baby Bear came down the stairs. Papa Bear growled, "Porridge! Smells good!" Baby Bear squeaked, "Smells good!"

As Papa Bear put the first spoonful in his mouth, he exclaimed,"This is too hot."

"We'll walk in the forest," said Mama Bear. "When we get back, the porridge will be cool."

One morning I got up early and made a big, steamy pot of porridge with honey and a pinch of cinnamon and two pawfuls of raisins in it. I was sure that Papa Bear and Baby Bear would love it.

Soon Papa Bear and Baby Bear came down the stairs, and Papa Bear growled, "Porridge! Smells good!" Baby Bear squeaked, "Smells good!"

As Papa Bear put the first spoonful in his mouth, he exclaimed,"This is too hot." He was furious.

I knew it! He always has something to complain about. So I thought about what we could do to calm Papa Bear until the porridge cooled off.

So I suggested that we walk in the forest so that the porridge would cool off until we got back.

One morning Mama Bear got up early and made a big, steamy pot of porridge with honey and a pinch of cinnamon and two pawfuls of raisins in it.

"Yum, I am sure that Papa Bear and Baby Bear will love it!" she thought as she put the finishing touches.
Soon Papa Bear and Baby Bear came down the stairs, their stomachs growling with hunger. Their noses soon caught the scent. Papa Bear growled, "Porridge! Smells good!" Baby Bear squeaked, "Smells good!"

As Papa Bear put the first spoonful in his mouth, he exclaimed,"This is too hot." Papa Bear was furious. "She can't do anything right!" he thought.

"I knew it! He always has something to complain about" thought Mama Bear. So she thought about what they could do to calm Papa Bear until the porridge cooled off.

"We'll walk in the forest," said Mama Bear. "When we get back, the porridge will be cool."

Once upon a time there was a frog. One day when he was sitting on his lily pad, he saw a beautiful princess sitting by the pond and thought to himself, "This is my opportunity." He hopped in the water, swam over to her, and poked his head out of the weeds.

"Pardon me, O beautiful princess," he said in his most sad and pathetic voice. "I wonder if you could help me."

The princess was about to jump and run, but she felt sorry for the frog with the sad and pathetic voice. So, she asked, "What can I do to help you, little frog?"

"Well," said the frog. "I'm not really a frog, but a handsome prince who was turned into a frog by a wicked witch's spell. The spell can only be broken by the kiss of a beautiful princess."

The princess thought about this for a second, but since she felt sorry for the frog, she lifted him from the pond and kissed him.

Dialogue: when characters speak
Narration: when the narrator speaks

When determining point of view do not look at dialogue (the words in quotation marks).

Example:

I called, "Mr Pig, Mr. Pig, let me in!"
