Presentation Transcript

Slide 1:

Who’s telling the story? Point of View

Slide 2:

Point of view- Perspective- Omniscient- Objective- Vocabulary

Slide 3:

The Basics Stories have a narrator. The narrator can either be a character in the story, someone talking to you, or an outside observer. The point of view shifts depending on who is narrating the story. Omniscient means all knowing. The point of view sometimes changes in the middle of the story.

Slide 4:

These are a pair of magical glasses. Whoever is wearing them is the one who gets to tell the story.

Slide 5:

We need to figure out who is wearing the glasses…

Slide 6:

Is it a character in the story? I’m a character in this world.

Slide 7:

Is it someone talking to you, the reader ? You better listen to me.

Slide 8:

Or is it an outside observer ? I’m an outside narrator who is looking into this world.

Slide 9:

When a character in the story wears the glasses… …they are a character in this world. …it is called FIRST PERSON Point of View! …they use words like I, we, my, us, ourselves. That’s because I’m part of the story. …you see the story from my point of view.

Example passage-First Person If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of stuff, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them. -J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (1951)

When an outside narrator wears the m agic glasses… …they don’t use words like I, we, or me because they are not in the story. …we call it third person point of view. …they tell you about what the characters are doing. …they are not a character in the story.

Slide 20:

There are three kinds of third p erson point of view … Third Person Limited Third Person Omniscient Third Person Objective

Slide 21:

Third Person Objective Doesn’t know any of the character’s thoughts or feelings.

Slide 22:

Third Person Limited Knows the thoughts of ONLY ONE Character…

Slide 23:

Third Person Omniscient Knows the thoughts of MORE than ONE Character… Do Narwhals really exist? What’s a dinocorn …I wonder if that tastes good with flies. I want some toast…hmmm toast.

Slide 24:

Here are a couple of pointers … Don’t pay attention to words in quotes. They are not words f rom behind the g lasses. If the person telling the story Knows the thoughts of two Characters then, you know it is Third Person Omniscient. SQUIRREL!
