Assigned Readings, Sept. 30

(download and read)

This assignment is about point of view (POV) and the person (1st, 2nd, 3rd) that the author chooses for his/her narrative voice. Each reading is an example of an author's exploration of the way their subject sees and understands his/her world. In some cases, the author writes from the point of view of the subject. In others the author examines the point of view through the narrator who describes the point of view of the subject as a character external to the narrator. As to person in narration, There are advantages and limitations to narrating in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person. We will discuss this in class. We understand that this is a rather long reading assignment and note that the readings are easy, engaging and fast. They will get you to thinking!!
