point of view
Point of View
  • The side or perspective from which a story is told
  • POV influences:
    • The plot
    • How much is revealed to the reader
    • What kinds of information is revealed to the reader
  • Four main points of view:
    • First-person
    • Third-person limited
    • Third-person omniscient
    • Objective
first person p oint of view
First-Person Point of View
  • Narrator is a character in the story
  • Uses first-person pronouns
  • We learn the narrator’s thoughts, feelings, and actions
  • May be unreliable or inaccurate
third person limited point of view
Third-Person Limited Point of View
  • Narrator is not a character in the story
  • Narrator tells story from one character’s perspective
    • The reader learns what this one character thinks and feels
  • Uses third-person pronouns
third person omniscient point of view
Third-Person Omniscient Point of View
  • Narrator is all-knowing
  • Narrator can enter the minds of all characters to tell parts of the story from different perspectives
    • Narrator can inform the reader of any character’s thoughts and feelings
  • Uses third-person pronouns
objective point of view
Objective Point of View
  • Narrator is not a character in the story
  • Narrator never enters a character’s mind
  • Narrator only records what is seen and heard (like a hidden camera)
  • Allows more inferences to be made by the reader
metaphor
Metaphor

Example:

The fallen leaves are a blanket covering the ground.

States that one thing is something else

It is a comparison of two dissimilar things

Does not use “like” or “as”

simile
Simile

Example:

The lake is as smooth as glass.

A comparison of two dissimilar things

Uses “like” or “as”

symbolism
Symbolism
  • Examples of Political Symbols

Has meaning beyond the obvious

Is an object that stands for itself and a greater idea or value that is usually abstract

spotting symbols
Spotting Symbols
  • There is no one way or absolutely correct way to spot a symbol, but you must be able to explain the symbol and what it means using information from the story.
  • Here are some things to look for:
    • Colors or objects that might represent something abstract
    • Unusual character names
    • Objects or creatures that have cultural meanings
