"Eveline" is writien from a third person point of view.

"SHE sat at the window watching the evening invade the avenue. Her head was leaned against the window curtains and in her nostrils was the odour of dusty cretonne. She was tired." The story is told from the point of view of an unknown narrator.

The story is told from Eveline's point of view. However, it isn't a straightforward relating of events; we are inside her head, reading her thoughts. Eveline's story is told by the battle of her conscience, the struggle over whether she can abandon her abusive father for a new life. The story takes shape through her conflicting emotions, fears and desires as well as her impressions of the people around her.

Eveline is written in third person-method of narration. The pronouns she and he are used. This helps us to see every side of the events although the story takes place in her own head.
