It is with the point of view that an author can guide the reader through various events and create an overall theme of a story. Differences in narration can greatly affect how a reader experiences literature. For the most part, there are two types of narration in stories: first person and third person. A second-person point of view exists but is very rare. Authors that use a second-person point of view make the reader one of the characters, thus including the reader in the story.
While reading stories, people can discover different points of view. Although stories have different points of view, similar messages can be created from them. The point of view of a story often creates tension. Many details have been found to prove this. By analyzing these stories, the different points of view can explain why tension was created.
Her very successful beauty empire is ruled with a soft touch. She believes in inspiring her staff to greater heights by encouragement for a job well done. Clearly, Doe Deere is a different type of leader. She is also on a personal mission to prove that makeup is more than a tool to cover up imperfections. Makeup and all cosmetics should be viewed as a tool to release a person's
“Dee” does not share in the recognition and reverence of their culture even though her mother does. She describes this type of culture as a fragile heritage and she points out the aspect of clothing and design as a reason. She considers the dress code by her grandfather and mother an outdated mode of living. Dee wants to go by the current standards of life and she cannot have a second thought about this. Being an African American she comes out strongly to condemn the oppression that the blacks underwent in the hands of the whites.
Reading fiction helps a reader develop empathy, allows a reader to explore different viewpoints and helps the reader to learn social skills. One of the most powerful effects of a fiction story is its ability to make people empathize with its characters. When reading a fiction story, the reader has been following the conflict and has witnessed the effect of the conflict on the character and are therefore more empathic
Through the eyes of an author, there could be many ways to write a story, but their goal is to pick the best way the story would be told. Many times authors who write in the third person perspective, lack major details about how the main character feels; but when written in the first person point of view, it allows the reader to interpret the tone through the character's feelings because the character expresses their thoughts and actions in deeper detail. The book Grendel by John Gardner, engages the reader in a first person point of view, allowing the reader to further analyze the main characters views on society, thoughts on the attack on the mead hall, and the final battle: on the contrary, the epic poem, Beowulf, tells the same story in
In the story, Dee is presented to the audience as someone who enjoys nice things and “had a style of her own: and knew what style was.” She wears the typical Americanized clothing style common to that time period. However, when she arrives at her family’s home, her family finds that she has completely altered her style: Walker writes in description of Dee, “A dress to the ground, in this hot weather. A dress so loud it hurts my eyes. There are yellow and oranges enough to throw back the light…It is her sister’s hair. It stands up straight up like the wool on a sheep…and around the edges are two long pigtails…” For Dee, the changing of her hair and clothing is a way for her to further the change of her identity.
I liked that the author kept me interested in the writing because it reeled me into the story so I didn’t feel the need to start to drift away from it. It kept you into the story and I liked that because of all of the spontaneous details that the author gave to elaborate on his ideas. Most of this story is direct characterization because the author tells you about the characters and then that's how the characters acted and didn’t
The view of the story is limited to the narrator’s descriptions of the events and therefore it is a first person limited narrator. The effect of the narrator’s anonymity creates an illusion of, regarding the reader’s view, that the narrator of the story could be anyone, and therefore makes the story universal. In addition the novel is written through the view of the first person narrator and the reader are following his thoughts as an association thought-stream, also known as stream of consciousness. “It was a terrible shame that it was 1994 and Dot lived in the Midlands, as she would’ve been an excellent pirate” (p. 2-3, l. 35-36). Hereby the actions of the story are moving in-between different considerations, thoughts and
I found the book a bit too thick at the opening but then I thought of all the possibilities that it could bring to the tale. The length of the novel brought great potential for a well-developed character and a great explanation of everything that went on. If the book was only half of the pages it has originally, we wouldn’t receive all the information needed for it to be a fully comprehensible book. It also opens the universe of well-combined themes and subjects. The story gives us such an overflow of different topics that we find it hard to search the truly main source.
