Objectives: To identify the type of point of view used in a particular story. To consider the role of point of view in how the story is constructed. To illustrate the role of point of view through quoting and discussing specific language contained in the story.
Introduction: In this class, we’ve studied the various types of point of view and considered the ways in which they afford the writer various abilities. This paper will ask you to consider the ways in which point of view shapes our understanding of the story and how it may be constructed.
Task: Choose a story from the “Point of View and Voice” days on the course schedule. In your paper, first identify the type of point of view and briefly discuss the freedoms and limitations associated with that point of view. Then, create an argument (with a concise claim sentence) about how the point of view impacts the meaning of the story. In your discussion of this claim, make specific references to words, phrases, and sentences wherein the point of view plays an important role in how readers understand the story. You may want to consider some of the questions below in constructing your argument:
What does the point of view show the reader? What does it hide? Why?How close is the psychic distance in the story? Why did the author choose this distance?What does the point of view tend to emphasize? Why?
If the story were told in a different point of view, what would the effect be? Why, then, did the author choose the particular point of view that he/she did?Outside Sources: There is no need to consult any outside resources, and in fact, that is discouraged. I am most interested in your own thinking throughout this semester. That said, you will need to cite all quotes taken from the stories. The Purdue OWL is a great resource for citation and documentation strategies that adhere to MLA style. As always, any student found to plagiarize on this or any assignment will receive a grade of ZERO.
