  1. By: Mariah Rubenacker, Mary Wandor, Jacob Pajk, Allie Williams, Andrew Semerau Point of View What is the point of view? Answer: The perspective from which the story is told.

  2. first Person • First Person point of view is told from the viewpoint of one of the characters. • The author uses the pronoun, “I”. • Is usually told in the viewpoint of the main character, which is not always the case. • In the Most Dangerous Game, the author doesn’t use first person.

  3. Third person • Third person is the point of view in which the author tells the story, not the characters. • The author writes using the pronouns, “She”, “He”, “They”, etc… • Can be told from the main character, or from a minor character’s point of view. • The author of The Most Dangerous Game uses Third Person to write the Story.

  4. Omniscient • When it’s written in third person, but the author follows another character than they were originally following. • Just like in third person, you’re still using the pronouns, “she”, “he”, “they”, etc… • We see an excellent example of this at the end of the Most Dangerous Gamewhen Rainsford jumps off the cliff, and the perspective is in Zaroff’s place.

  5. Central-limited and Peripheral-limited Omniscient • Central-Limited Omniscient is the main character’s point of view in third person. • Peripheral-Limited Omniscient is a minor character’s point of view in third person, such as in Sherlock Holmes. • In The Most Dangerous Game, this is not used.
