The narrator in first person stories should never be confused with the author. We must remember that
the narrator is created by the author .
First-Person In first person stories the author has no more than ordinary access to the thoughts, emotions and mental states of the other characters . The reader only has available the observations, thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of the narrator.
The dramatic point of view limits us even further to what the characters do and say. Their appearance and the setting are often supplied by the author, but there is never any direct representation of what they think or how they feel . Here mental states may be inferred from action and dialogue.
This point of view is also called the camera view ; seeing and recording the action from a natural or unemotional view.
