Point of View in Fairy Tales
Point of View in Art In art its the angle of view from which a person sees the picture or scene. Lets look at a photograph to determine angle of view.
What is beyond the green tree in the foreground?
New Angles in Photographs Point of view in a story is like the angle of a photograph. A different angle in a picture gives us a new way of thinking about it.
Point of View in Literature In literature point of view is the angle which a reader connects to the storyusually by the person who tells the story. In Cendrillon, we know the person telling the story is Nannin, Cendrillons godmother.
The Person Telling the Story Having a character relate the events makes a story more personal and helps the reader feel involved. Cendrillons godmother can only see things from her own understanding. For instance, she doesnt know Cendrillons thoughts, but she can tell what Cendrillons feelings are from her actions and words.
What Happens When Point of View Changes? What if the wicked stepmum, Madame Prosperine, tells the story? What if Paul tells the story?
Other Point of View Choices How would the story change if a distant, all-knowing narrator told the story? This person is called a 3 rd person narrator. What if you are the I person telling the story? How will the story change? This person is called the 1 st person narrator.
You Decide! Would Cendrillon be a better fairy tale if another character told the story? Think about this as you choose the next Cinderella fairy tale to read.
