How to Read: Point of View


Narrator—3rd person

A 3rd-person narrator determines what we know  about events and characters. And how much we know determines which characters we identify with.

Omnisicient—we are privy to inner thoughts of all characters and identify with none in particular.
Limited Omniscient—we are privy to inner thoughts of primary characters, following them more closely and thus identifying with them over others.
Objective—we have no access to inner thoughts of any characters, identifying only with those whose behavior reflects our own values.
