Point of View
Transcript of Point of View
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. Why Authors use Point of View Example Raymond's Run: " I don't have much work to do around the house like some girls. "
Toni Cade Bambara Example Haunted Dreams: " You make your way down the empty streets, the only artifical light coming from a lone street lamp, which blinks as you walk past. "
Joe Duncko Example The Story of an Hour: " There was something coming to her and she was waiting for it, fearfully. What was it? "
