Point of View
Point of View
пЃ®
Point of View is the perspective from which a
story is told from.
пЃ®
There are three different kinds of point of view
you need to know.
First Person
First-person definition is when a story is
narrated by only one character at a time, who
refers to him- or herself using words and
phrases involving "I and/or "we." This allows
the reader or audience to see the point of view
(including opinions, thoughts, and feelings) only
of the narrator, and no other characters.
First Person
пЃ®
In other words the story is being told by our
main character and we will only know their
thoughts if they tell us.
I am going to
break that
camera as soon
as I can get my
hands on it.

If you see an
abundance of
these pronouns
you will know
the story is
being told in
third person.
Third Person
There are two different types of third
person
Let’s start with third person limited
Third Person Limited
Third person limited point of view is a
method of storytelling in which the
narrator knows only the thoughts and
feelings of a single character, while other
characters are presented externally.
Third Person Limited
In other words we are LIMITED to hearing the
thoughts and feelings of ONE person
Jane thought she was
one cool baby in her
stunna shades.
Third Person Omniscient
Third Person Omniscient:
A method of storytelling in which the
narrator knows the thoughts and
feelings of all, or most, of the
characters in the story
Third Person Omniscient
In other words, we are an all powerful being able
to spy on the thoughts and feelings of MANY
people
John (the father)
thought his son was
interested in what he
had to say, but
Tommy could care
less and was just
humoring his father.
But how can I easily tell them apart?
пЃ®
There is a very simple process you can take
to easily deciding which point of view you
are looking at.

1.
Robert Jordan could walk well enough himself
and he knew from following him since before
daylight that the old man could walk him to

Anselmo, so far, in everything except
judgment. He had not yet had an opportunity
to test his judgment, and, anyway, the
judgment was his own responsibility."

3. I reached down to pick up the shards of glass
around Ester's bare feet. She didn't move, but
her tension was like the skin on the bright, tiny

idiot, grabbed at a piece of glass. It pierced
my thumb like a knife.
