Author's Narrative Voice: Point of View
What's point of view?
It is the "how" of the narrative, or the way the author allows us to
SEE
and
HEAR
what is going on in the story.

The
PERSPECTIVE
from which the story is told.
Consider the following to understand how
PERSPECTIVE
can affect a situation...
How does Darla feel about having Nemo for a pet?
Types of Point of View:
*First Person

How does Nemo feel about having Darla as his owner?

*Third Person Objective
*Third Person Omniscient
*Third Person Limited
*Second Person
First Person:
Told by a character IN the story
Is considered
UNRELIABLE
since we only see and hear one character's thoughts and feelings
Clue words are 1st person pronouns:
I, we, our, me, my
,
mine
We see the story through that character's eyes
Third Person Limited:
Told by a narrator OUTSIDE the story
Narrator knows only the thoughts and feelings of
one

character (usually the main character)
Also
UNRELIABLE

Clue words are 3rd person pronouns like he, she, him, her, they, them or character names
Third Person Omniscient:
Second Person:

The narrator addresses
you
, the reader

This is often seen in "how to" writing or technical writing
Clue words are 2nd person pronouns: you, your, yours
Told by an outside narrator
Narrator is "all knowing"--they know every thought and feeling of
EACH
character
This point of view is also
RELIABLE
since you see and hear all characters
Clue words are 3rd person pronouns: he, she, him, her, it, they, them, or character names
Third Person Objective:
There is an outside narrator
Narrator only reports facts in an
NEUTRAL
observer
This means they don't give personal feelings or opinions on the thoughts, feelings, or actions of the characters
This is also considered a
RELIABLE
viewpoint
Mostly in
NON-FICTION
Clue words are 3rd person pronouns: he, she, him, her, it, they, them, or character names

Harry had taken up his place at wizard school, where he and his scar were famous ...but now the school year was over, and he was back with the Dursleys for the summer, back to being treated like a dog that had rolled in something smelly.

The Dursleys hadn't even remembered that today happened to be Harry's twelfth birthday. Of course, his hopes hadn't been high?
