Point of View In Literature

First person and Third person point of views are the most common point of views in fictional novels. First Person is the use of language that includes "I-me-my-mine," spoken through the characters narrative.Third Person is a point of view that uses an outsider such as a narrator to depict the story. The narrator can be omniscient or limited (only entering the mind of one character). First person is always more intimate and can be fun if the narrator has her or his own prejudices or deficiencies to deal with. Third person would definitely be needed for larger stories, of those in which it is important to keep a little distance from the central character.
