Narrative Perspective

LI: To rewrite the story of Cinderella using a different narrative perspective.

Narrators are important vessels of information that often retell to us the events that are happening in a story. However, narrators use different perspectives and point of views to influence the audience’s reaction to the story. These perspectives are first person, second person, third person, third person limited and third person omniscient.

While first, second and third person are familiar, we introduce ourself to third person limited and third person omniscient. We also explored the different pronouns that each point of view uses and how the author influences the reader’s perspective on a text by the use of vocabulary and point of view.

Our challenge today was to change the fairy tale of Cinderella from third person omniscient to first. Third Person Omniscient is when the narrator is not a character in the story but watches what is happening and also knows all the facts. First person is a way of storytelling through the narrator’s point of view or author’s point of view.
