Literary Elements: Narrator and Narrative Method

  • Page ID
  • The narrator and narrative method are also important literary elements to consider.


    The narrator is pretty simple. It is the person who is telling the story.

    Narrative Method

    The narrative method is a bit more complicated. It is the manner in which the story is told, or to put it simply, the point of view from with the story is told. There are three main types of point of view that we see in stories:

    1. First person

    2. Second person

    3. Third person

    • Third person can be broken down into three separate categories as well: Limited, omniscient, and objective.
