Point of view: the perspective from which the story is told.

  • The most obvious point of view is probably first person or "I."
  • The omniscient narrator knows everything, may reveal the motivations, thoughts and feelings of the characters, and gives the reader information.
  • With a limited omniscient narrator (third person limited), the material is presented from the point of view of a character, in third person.
  • The objective point of view presents the action and the characters' speech, without comment or emotion. The reader has to interpret them and uncover their meaning.

I hope this helps you figure it out!
