Chapter 5 discusses the importance of point of view in literature and, more specifically,  in the short story. Choose  one  short story from the course text about which you have  not yet written, and analyze it in terms of point of view.  When writing your post, consider the following questions How would you categorize the point of view [e.g., first-person, second-person (i.e., “you”), third-person limited, third-person omniscient]? Is the point of view consistent throughout the story (told from the same perspective), or does it shift at any points in the narrative? (If so, make note of when and how those changes occur.) 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? How does point of view relate to the story’s themes or content?

Unformatted text preview: Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the text, and properly cite any references.

It shape my reading because I wanted the little girl to realize the wolf is dangerous and to be careful ,but I also understand that she is young and doesn't know better. The point of view to me relates that children should not talk to strangers ,the little girl does not realize that telling the wolf where she was going was not a good idea and a danger to herself and her grandmother....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
