Point of View in Literature

  • In Cendrillon, we know the person telling the story is Nannin, Cendrillon’s godmother.

The Person Telling the Story

  • Having a character relate the events makes a story more personal and helps the reader feel involved.

  • Cendrillon’s godmother can only see things from her own understanding.

  • For instance, she doesn’t know Cendrillon’s thoughts, but she can tell what Cendrillon’s feelings are from her actions and words.
