Point of view

  • In English class, point of view refers to the narrator’s relation to the story he’s telling.

  • The narrator could be part of the story, for example, or not part of the story.

  • There’s actually THREE different points of view; if someone asks you about the p.o.v. of a story, your response should be 1st,2nd, or 3rd.

  • They are easy to distinguish if you know which pronouns to look for as clues.
