    9. 9. There are different types of narrators• First-person narrator : Either the protagonist (= the main character in the story) or one of the minor characters tells the story. The narrator uses pronouns like I, we, me etc. First-person narrators can only present things which they see, hear, feel, know and think. Therefore the narrative is often subjective. And because one character cannot know everything, the point of view will be limited.
    10. 10. • Third-person narrator: If the narrator is not a character in the story, we talk about a third-person narrator. The narrator will then use pronouns like he, she or they. The point of view may be more objective than for a first-person narrator, but it still presents the reader with a selective perspective, and often also with the narrator‘s comments and judgements.
    11. 11. • Third-person narrator: If the narrator is not a character in the story, we talk about a third-person narrator. The narrator will then use pronouns like he, she or they. The point of view may be more objective than for a first-person narrator, but it still presents the reader with a selective perspective, and often also with the narrator‘s comments and judgements.• A third-person narrator who knows everything that is happening in different places, at the same time and even inside the characters‘ minds is called omniscient. His or her knowledge of the story is unlimited. It is also possible that a third person narrator has a limited point of view, so that they cannot see into the minds of some of the characters in the story.
    12. 12. Point of view Source: http://lazytechguys.zippykidcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/writing-with-quill1.jpg• The perspective from which a narrator tells the story is called point of view. Readers of a story ,see through the eyes‘ of the narrator. As we have already seen the narrator‘s perspective can be omniscient - seeing everything, or limited.
