The story is written in the third person point of view.

"One of the most striking stylistic aspects of ' 'The Jilting of Granny Weatherall'' is its unusual narrative perspective."

"The story is told through stream-of-consciousness. Granny's thoughts are presented in a spontaneous fashion, as if readers had access to her thoughts at the moment each one occurs to her."
