Transcript of Point of View

Point of View
First Person
Third Person Objective
The narrator is not a character in the story; pronouns like he, she, it, they, etc. are used.
Third Person Limited
Story is told from a character's perspective; we find out only what the character knows, thinks, and witnesses.
First-person pronouns like I, me, my, and mine are used in telling the story.
As I was tossed about at the concert, I shouted, "FREE BIRD!!"
Third Person Omniscient
The narrator is not a character in the story; pronouns like he, she, his, hers, it, they, etc. are used.
We can see the thoughts and feelings of all of the characters; we can know all actions and events.
(Omniscient means "all-knowing"!)
As the band played, the crowd grew feverish. Charlie wondered if he would ever get out alive, while Claire could only think of the roast she left in the oven. Only Sun was having a good time, letting herself get lost in the music.
Second Person
The narrator speaks to you directly. Pronouns like you, your, and yours are used.
Second person is rarely used, except for letters, text messages, and Choose-Your-Own-Adventures.
You are about to be trampled at a concert. If you choose to run to the back, turn to page 65. If you choose to curl up in the fetal position, turn to page 107.
"im @ a concert, how r u?"
Did you get my text? This band is rad!"
The narrator is an observer who can only tell us what is said and done; we cannot see the minds of any characters.
Hurley dove onto the crowd as he attempted to surf. Kate and Jin failed to hold him up due to his considerable weight. Eight people were smashed.
The narrator is not a character in the story; pronouns like he, she, it, they, etc. are used.
The narrator tells the story from the perspective of one of the characters; we can see what that character feels and thinks, but ONLY for that one character. (Very similar to First Person.)
Sawyer looked around the crowd, but he couldn't find Kate. "She's probably off with Jack!" he thought as he muttered under his breath.
