Point of View

  1. 1.  The voice or perspective that the story is being told from  Narrator – the one telling the story. The reader shares this person’s view.
  2. 2.  Character in the story is the narrator. We only know what this person thinks, feels, and chooses to tell us. “I walked into the ball. I could feel all of the people looking at me. I looked for the prince.”
  3. 3.  Told by an outside narrator who is not a character in the story. Narrator zooms in on one character. We only know the thoughts and feelings of this character. “Cinderella walked into the ball. She was so nervous. She hoped the prince would notice her.”
  4. 4.  Told by an outside narrator who is not a character in the story. Narrator is “all knowing”. We know the thoughts and feelings of all of the characters. “Cinderella felt so nervous. She knew that all eyes were on her. The prince felt his heart jump in his throat. He had never seen anyone so beautiful. “
  5. 5.  Point of view makes ALL the difference in a story!  We will usually come closer to agreeing with a person if we see that person’s side to the story, but every story has another side.  Think of the story of “The Three Bears.” How would that story be different if you had Father Bear’s 1st person point of view? What if you had a third person omniscient point of view?
