Narrative Perspective Point of View Authors Point of View Dialogue and Narration Dialogue = when characters speak. Narration = when the narrator speaks. Quotation marks separate narration from dialogue. Example

Help my cousin Jack said. 1 2 Identifying Narrative Perspective It's about the narrator (who tells the story) We're not looking at dialogue. We don't care what characters say. Only the narrator's voice matters.

Pronoun Case We are trying to figure out the narrator's view point on the story. Perspectives and Signal Words First-Person I, me, my, mine, we, us, ours,

Second-Person you, your Third-Person he, she, her, they, them (also character's names) Secret I am in the room I = 1st Person

You come in the room. You = 2nd Person Then he or she came in the room. He or She = 3rd Person First-Person Narrator is a part of the story (character). Often uses I or we. Example I went home. Tim came over. I couldn't play.

Second-Person Usually for instructions Uses You; from your perspective. Examples First, gather your materials. Add 1 cup sugar to flour. Third-Person Narrator usually isnt involved. Tells other's stories.

Lots of He, She, & character names. Three Types of Third-Person Narration Does the narrator tell Thoughts and Feelings of Characters? Third-Person Omniscient Narrator is all knowing. Narrator tells thoughts and feelings of more than one character.

Omni = All Scient = Knowing Example Tim was mad at Shay. He blamed her. Shay knew Tim would be mad, but she wanted to live her life. Third-Person Limited

Narrator is limited to one character. Tells thoughts & feelings of one character Example Tim was mad at Shay. He blamed her. Shay just left without saying anything. She left a note and then left him. Third-Person Objective Narrator does not reveal any characters thoughts or feelings.

Only characters dialogue and actions are narrated. Example Tim slammed the door. He walked upstairs & read a note from Shay. He kicked her trash can & started crying. Tips on Identifying Check 1st or 2nd-person before worrying about objective, limited, or omniscient.

Ask, Whos story is the narrator telling: his, mine, or someone elses? Focus on narration not dialogue. Practice 1. Read the following passages. 2. Determine the narrators perspective. 3. Write down your answer. 1

"I suppose they've each got "TWEEDLE" round at the back of the collar," she

said to herself. They stood so still that she quite forgot they were alive, and she was just looking round to see if the word "TWEEDLE" was written at the back of each collar, when she was startled by a voice coming from the one marked "DUM." Answers 1. 2. 3.
