  1. Unit 2Character & Point of View English I RL3: Analyze how complex characters develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme

  2. Point of View The perspective from which a story is told first person third person

  3. First person POV • Narrator—main or minor character • Refers to self as I or me • Presents own thought & feelings • No access to thoughts & feelings of other characters IMPACT • Reader’s understanding is limited to what the narrator reveals • May not trust narrator’s interpretation • Story seems real

  4. Third person POV • Narrator—not a character (may merely be a voice) • Omniscient—knows thoughts & feelings of all characters • Limited—focuses on thoughts & feelings of one character IMPACT • Learn more about characters & events • Less personal

  5. Responses 1. There is conflicting information regarding the POV of “The Necklace.” In which POV do you think the story is written? Why? Support your response. 2. Synthesizing: Search online and learn more about Maya Angelou & I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Why is the excerpt we read significant to her life (think of causes & effects)? How does using 1st person POV in Caged Bird affect this story?

  6. Characterization The process in which the personality of a character is revealed (p. 204) direct indirect

  7. Direct characterization • Tells the audience what the personality of the character is • Leaves less to the imagination of the reader Example Jane Pittman “The other reason I never looked at a man, I was barren.” What might this tell us about Jane’s personality?

  8. Indirect characterization • Shows things that reveal the personality of a character

  9. Indirect characterization Example Jane Pittman “My master…gived my mistress the whip and told her to teach me a lesson. Every time she hit me she asked me what I said my name was. I said Jane Brown. She hit me again: what I said my name was. I said Jane Brown.” What does this show us about Jane’s personality?

  10. Direct or indirect? • Julie held up six different outfits in front of the mirror and pondered which would go best with her navy blue shoes, pastel eye shadow and the diamond earrings she’d already procured from her overflowing vanity. After ninety minutes of mixing and matching, and cell-phoning her sister three times for advice, Julie finally made up her mind. She’d give the navy blue skirt and white sweater a try, hoping Trent would love it. • Julie owned a multitude of outfits and accessories, and it always took her forever to decide which combination might impress Trent. As usual, she called her sister several times for advice. After doing so, Julie decided to give the navy blue skirt with the white sweater a try.
