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.
