    • Elements of Fiction
      Part Two
    • Point of View
      Who is telling the story?
      Narrator vs. author
      Objective
      Detached observer
      Does not participate in action
      Third-person
      Similar to objective, but does in fact allow access to character consciousness
      First person
      Narrator participates directly in action of story
    • Point of View (cont’d)
      Omniscient
      Narrator is all-knowing
      Controls how information is revealed to reader
      Limited omniscient
      All-knowing but only about a few characters
    • Point of ViewPoints to Remember
      How does the point of view affect our relationship with the characters?
      How does point of view influence our response?
      Narrator’s reliability
    • Language & Style
      Style
      Verbal identity of the author
      Created through a varied use of language
      Language techniques
      Diction (word choices)
      Syntax (order of words)
      Figurative language (simile, metaphor, personification, etc.)
    • Theme
      Idea or point of the story
      Related to all elements of fiction
      Theme is constructed through plot, setting, character, language, etc.
      Is their only one possible theme?
    • Irony
      Appears in fiction in:
      Language
      Incidents/events
      Point of view
      Contrast between what is meant and what happens/what is expected to happen
    • Types of irony
      Verbal irony
      Often appears as sarcasm
      Saying one thing, but meaning another
      Irony of circumstance
      Discrepancies between what seems to be and what is
      Discrepancies between what is expected and what actually happens
      Dramatic Irony
      Discrepancies between what characters know and what readers know
    • Symbol
      Objects, actions, events that convey meaning
      Usually meaning beyond literal significance
      Can appear in figurative language
    • Identifying symbolism
      What is the importance of the object? Frequency of appearance? When does it appear?
      Does the story seem to hint that there is more than just a literal aspect?
      Does the symbolic interpretation make sense?
      What objections might be raised about that symbolic interpretation?
