Authors and artists Perspectives

  • Perspectives by artists are often the positions that images are viewed in relation to each other from a particular point. Perspectives may also refer to a person’s outlook on a piece of art.

Author s perspective point of view

Author’s Perspective (point of view)

  • 1st Person POV

    • The narrator is a character in the story

    • Personal Pronouns (I, me, my, us, we, etc.)

  • 2nd person POV

    • The narrator tells the story to another character using “you”

    • Examples: Letter to someone, public speech or address, directions

  • 3rd Person POV

    • Objective: the narrator tells the story from a seemingly neutral, impersonal perspective

    • Limited: the narrator knows and interprets the facts according to one character

    • Omniscient: the narrator is all-knowing reporting the facts and interpreting events, feelings, and thoughts of seemingly any character.


Author s perspective

Author’s perspective

  • Increasing workloads tax both physical and mental health. Unless a person is in a physically-intensive profession, a body will waste away with inactivity. Additionally, the diet suffers as more time is spent at work because people do not have the time to prepare healthy meals or, even worse, may not have time to eat at all.

    • 3RD PERSON POINT OF VIEW

  • Increasing your workload is taxing on both your physical and mental health. Unless you are in a physically-intensive profession, your body is wasting away while you are working. Additionally, your diet also suffers as you spend more time at work. No longer [do you] have the time to prepare healthy meals at home or even worse, you may not have time to eat at all.

    • 2ND PERSON POINT OF VIEW

  • I have found that increasing my workload is taxing on both my physical and mental health. Unless I am in a physically-intensive profession, my body is wasting away while I work. Additionally, my diet has also suffered as I have spent more time at work. No longer do I have the time to prepare healthy meals at home or even worse; I sometimes do not have time to eat at all.
