of view describes the position of the narrator in a story. The main types of
point of view are first person and third person. In first person, the narrator
is a character in the story and uses “I” or “we” in non-dialogue text. In third
person, the narrator is not a character in the story but is removed from the
action and functions more as an observer. Second person point of view is more
rare, and concentrates more on "you." There are also many
subcategories of each type of point of view.
Macabre, dark, foreboding;
these adjectives are often used to describe the works of Edgar Allan Poe. While
this is true of many of his more notable works, like "The Raven" and
"The Fall of the House of Usher," Poe wrote other less ominous poems
and stories as well. This Reading Set included passages for many of Poe's most
famous works, as well as some lesser-known treasures.
