Seeing through Other Eyes—Point of View

Lecture no. 15 from the course: Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques

Seeing through Other Eyes—Point of View

Taught by Professor James Hynes | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

What happens in a story depends in large part on who tells it. The three-lecture unit on point of view begins with a quick tour of the major points of view, from the third-person omniscient to the subjective first person. You’ll also see how point of view is linked to time. As it turns out, when a story is told matters just as much as who tells it.
