  27. Narrative Voice • The mode from which the author chooses to tell the story

  28. Five Types of Narrative Voice • Stream-of-consciousness voice • Character Voice • Unreliable Voice • Epistolary Voice • Third-Person Voice

  29. Stream-of-Consciousness • Gives the narrator’s perspective by attempting to replicate the thought process of the narrator.

  34. Holden, Catcher in the Rye • If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

  35. Epistolary Voice • Uses a series of letters to convey the plot of the story

  36. Dear America: The Voyage on the Great Titanic Monday, 15 April 1912 My hands are shaking, I feel hot tears struggling against my eyes, and I have no idea where to begin. I120feel a driving need to tell everything properly, exactly as it happened, but my mind is cluttered with con- fusion, and exhaustion, and despair. And grief; I am overcome by grief. The Boat Deck. I will go back to the Boat Deck, and follow the evening through from there. Or — no, the story begins earlier, so that is where I will start.
