The position of the narrator in relation
to the story
Authors use point of view to try to establish the tone and the personality of their writing.
Readers determine the point of view by how the words are used.
First person point of view is when they speak for themselves, or about themselves.
The Second-Person point of view is rare but interesting. The author uses words such as you and your. They seem to speak directly towards the reader.
Third Person Omniscient is where you can hear all the thoughts of every character.
In limited, the reader is alone aware of one characters thoughts and feelings.
How They're Used
The objective point of view is to tell what happens without stating more than can be inferred from the stories in action and in dialogue.
