Is the narrator of the story "Happy Endings" an objective narrator?
I would like to add how these two different points of view are specifically used in the story. The third-person omnisicient point of view allows Atwood to know about what all of her characters are thinking and feeling. This point of view is used to describe John's and Mary's relationship as well as the relationship of Madge and Fred. We know how the characters feel about each other and why they are involved with one another.
The second person point of view is used to introduce and end the story.
