Point of View in Literature The point of view of a story is who is telling the story, or whose thoughts and feelings are shown. Some stories are told in first person point of view, and some are told in third person point of view.
First person – when a character in the story tells the reader the story from his/her point of view. Stories told in first person point of view use words like “I,” “we,” and “us.”
Third person – when a narrator that is not a character tells the reader the story. Stories told in third person point of view use words like “he,” “she,” and “them.”
