  • Point of view is the perspective from which a story is narrated, or told.

    • First-person point of view: The narrator is a character who participates in the action and uses the first-person pronouns “I” and “me.”

    • Third-person point of view:

      • The narrator is not a character in the story but a voice outside it.

      • The narrator uses the third-person pronouns he, she, him, her, they, and them to refer to all characters.

      • In the third-person omniscientpoint of view, the narrator knows everything, including the thoughts of all the characters.

      • In the third-person limited point of view, the narrator sees and reports things through one character’s eyes.

Point of ViewActivity

  • Pick any story we’ve read this year:

    • “The Most Dangerous Game”/ “A Sound of Thunder”

    • “Full Circle”

    • “The Cask of Amontillado”

    • “The Utterly Perfect Murder”

    • “Wasps’ Nest”

    • “The Waxwork”

    • “The Scarlet Ibis”

  • How would the story have been different if it was told from a different point of view? [ex: “MDG” from Zaroff’s POV]

    • You need identify the POV used, list at least 3-4 differences and then explain how they would affect the story in a paragraph response.
