Varying the Narrator’s Perspective

Lecture no. 17 from the course: The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals

Varying the Narrator’s Perspective

Taught by Professor Hannah B. Harvey | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Learn to build dynamic tension through your characters and achieve satisfying resolutions. Stories and exercises teach you how to treat third-person statements as if they’re first-person accounts and how to let secondary characters narrate for themselves or serve as “little narrators.” Understand ways to personify the negative force your protagonist is struggling with so it becomes a “little character.”
