Choice the short story called “ the necklace” by Guy de Maupassant (1884).
The story is in Third Person limited because the narrator is telling the story of Malinda and is focus on her the thoughts and feelings. The story is about a women that comes from a humble family and always regretted being poor and not having enough a luxury life. “She suffered intensely, feeling herself born for every delicacy and every luxury.
She suffered from the poverty of her dwelling, from the worn walls, the abraded chairs, the ugliness of the stuffs. ” *Is the point of view consistent throughout the story (told from the same point of view), or does it shift at any points in the narrative? (If so, make note of when and how those changes occur. ) The point of view doesn’t change, it’s very predominant during the entire story, it expresses her misery and unhappiness during the entire narrative in till she wear the necklace.
I have the impression that in small part of the story the narrative can shift from Third Person Limited to Third Person Omniscient because shows some thoughts of her husband “He grew a little pale, for he was reserving just that sum to buy a gun and treat himself to a little shooting, the next summer, on the plain of Nanterre, with some friends who used to shoot larks there on Sundays “ but the whole story is based on her and that’s why I truly believe the narrative is Third Person Limited. How does point of view shape your reading of the work? In what ways does it contribute to or detract from your reading of the work?
... story. It puzzled the reader by making them query who actually the racist character in this passage was. The third person limited point of view ... of these sensitive issues, O'Conner utilizes a unique narrative point of view in order to maneuver the reader's response to characters ...
The point of view shapes the reading work because the narrator transport me to the place where the story is taken place, and it makes me have some kind of empathy for the husband, because even do his feelings are not express, his wife misery and unhappiness is very well shown true out the story. The point of view help me connect to the story. * How does point of view relate to the story’s themes or content? The point of view relate to the theme because the narrator, who is telling the story from outside the action gives me a better understanding and helps me capture the feelings and surrandings.
