Ringlet of Hair
  • Objective Point of View
  • When the writer tells what happens without
    stating more than can be inferred from the
    storys action and dialogue
  • Narrator never discloses anything about what the
    characters think or feel, remaining a detached
    observer
  • Photographer/Author has chosen, in this case, to
    create in the viewer/reader a sense of mystery or
    a desire to know more

Nose Detail
  • Third-Person Narration
  • Narrator does not participate in the action of
    the story as one of the characters, but lets us
    know exactly how the characters feel
  • Third-person OMNISCIENT- knows what all
    characters think and feel
  • Third-person LIMITED- adheres closely to one
    persons perspective
  • We learn about the characters through this
    outside voice
  • Photo shows a large, sculpted nose that has
    incurred some damage
  • Viewer/reader can infer that this detail is part
    of a much larger, though unseen, statue that is
    exposed to the elements and that is aging

View from the Torch
  • First-Person Narrator
  • The statue itself
  • We are looking from the statues point of view
  • The narrator participates in the action of the
    story
  • What the narrator is recounting might not be the
    objective truth

  • Limited Omniscient Point of View
  • The narrator knows whats inside one
    character, but is limited to that character only
    (either major or minor)

    characters is all-knowing, or omniscient
