Transcript of Author's Point of View

What is the author's purpose of the text?
Point of view
How many points of view are there?
There are total three.
First person point of view
How do you know if a story is written in first person?
Second Person Point of view
What is it?
Example
More on 1st person


I, we

me, us

my/mine, our/ours
What are they?
First person
Second person
Third person
Define first person point of view.
First-person point
of view is in use when a character narrates the story with
I
-
me
-
my
-
mine
in his or her speech.
The advantage of this point of view is that you get to hear the thoughts of the narrator and see the world depicted in the story through his or her eyes.
Second-person point of view
, in which the author uses you and your, is rare; authors seldom speak directly to the reader.
As
I
walked up the hill,
I
realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who was nearly always singing from the top of the maple tree.
I
thought
I
saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when
I
looked again it was gone. Still,
I
shuddered as
I
felt a silent threat pass over me like a cloud over the sun.
These are all first person point words
Tip: Remember as long you include yourself it's first person point of view.
Define second person point of view
The
second person
uses the pronouns “
you
,” “
your
,” and “yours.” We use these three pronouns when addressing one, or more than one, person.
Second-person point of view draws the reader into the story, almost making the reader a participant in the action.
Example of
second person
point of view
As
you
walk up the hill,
you
realize that the atmosphere's just too quiet. There's no sound from the cardinal
you
know is almost always singing from the top of the maple tree.
You
think you see a shadow move high up on the slope, but when
you
look again it's gone.
You
shudder as you feel a silent threat pass over you.
You
feel cold, like a cloud just passed over the sun.
Third person point of view
what is it?
Third-person point of view is an outsider looking at the action.
Third-person omniscient
: In which are the thoughts of every character in the story. It's a way to tell the reader of what
all characters are thinking
.
Third-person limited
: In which the reader enters
only one character's mind
, either throughout the entire story or in a specific section of a story.
Example of
third person point of view
As
she
walked up the hill,
she
realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who
she
so often heard singing from the top of the maple tree.
She
thought
she
saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when
she
looked again it was gone. Nevertheless,
she
shuddered as
she
felt a silent threat pass over
her
. It felt like a cloud creeping over the sun.
