Perspectives and Signal Words


Sec ret

Secret

“I am in the room”

I = 1stPerson

“You come in the room.”

You = 2ndPerson

“Then he or she came in the room.”

He or She = 3rdPerson


First person

First-Person

Narrator is a part of the story (character).

Often uses I or we.

Example

Iwent home. Tim came over. I couldn't play.


Third person omniscient

Third-Person Omniscient

Narrator is allknowing.

Narrator tells thoughts and feelings of more than one character.

Omni = AllScient = Knowing

Example

Tim was mad at Shay. He blamed her. Shay knew Tim would be mad, but she wanted to live her life.


Third person limited

Third-Person Limited

Narrator is limited to one character.

Tells thoughts & feelings ofonecharacter

Example

Tim was mad at Shay. He blamed her. Shay just left without saying anything. She left a note and then left him.


Tips on identifying

Tips on Identifying

  • Check 1st or 2nd-person before worrying about objective, limited, or omniscient.

  • Ask, “Who’s story is the narrator telling: his, mine, or someone else’s?”

  • Focus on narration not dialogue.

Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar

Leslie sat in front of Paul. She had two long, brown pigtails that reached all the way down to her waist. Paul saw those pigtails, and a terrible urge came over him. He wanted to pull a pigtail. He wanted to wrap his fist around it, feel the hair between his fingers, and just yank. He thought it would be fun to tie the pigtails together, or better yet, tie them to her chair. But most of all, he just wanted to pull one.

What is the Narrative Perspective?

If it is third-person, which character’s thoughts are revealed?

Third-person Limited

Paul’s Thoughts

The Baffled Parent's Guide to Great Basketball Drills by Jim Garland

Before each practice begins, make sure you check the court and remove any debris from the playing surface. When your players arrive, check that they have the proper footwear and that they’ve removed any jewelry, which could injure the player wearing the jewelry or another player. Always carry a list of emergency phone numbers for your players, and know where the nearest phone is located. You should also have a first-aid kit, and you might want to take a first-aid course.

Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

The day Shiloh come, we’re having us a big Sunday dinner. Dara Lynn’s dipping bread in her glass of cold tea, the way she likes, and Becky pushes her beans over the edge of her plate in her rush to get ’em down. Ma gives us her scolding look. We live high up in the hills above Friendly, but hardly anybody knows where that is. Friendly’s near Sistersville, which is halfway between Wheeling and Parkersburg. Used to be, my daddy told me, Sistersville was once of the best places you could live in the whole state.
