  • Example: A large man whose nickname is “Tiny”
  • A reference to a person, place, poem, book, event, etc., which is not part of the story, that the author expects the reader will recognize.
  • Example: In The Glass Menagerie, Tom speaks of “Chamberlain’s umbrella,” a reference to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.
  • The author’s chosen identity in a work of literature
  • The plot is revealed through what this character says
  • This technique allows the writer to adopt the beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes of a character in the work, which allows for different approaches to stories
  • The reader should usually interpret the “I” in the writing as someone different from the author
