Gone: A Short Story Collection
StatisticsView Usage Statistics
Point of view is analyzed in seven of my own fictional short stories. Both first person and third person limited points of view are used in the stories. Three are written in third person limited point of view and four are written in first person point of view. Similar examples of point of view from published, notable fiction are compared to the stories in the collection. The thesis explores how point of view works in each story in terms of character and plot, and why each point of view works differently than another point of view. The seven stories follow the introduction, which discusses the point of view choices and comparative examples. Collectively, the introduction and stories provide a creative examination of point of view.
