Why do authors choose to use third person narration?
Third Person Multiple – This point of view allows the narrator to follow multiple characters within the story. The narrator can switch between characters and relate the story from their perspective. It is still limited because the narrator does not know about everything, only the characters he follows.
Which is a typical effect of the second person?
Second-person puts the reader into the story, and if done right can submerge the reader into the narrative completely. You can effectively communicate how each moment feels; delivering sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, all directly to the narrator. You can tell them what to feel and how to react.
Why is second person point of view rarely used?
The second-person point of view is rarely used in fiction because it can be very difficult to do well. It’s usually far easier to develop a fictional character and tell the story through their eyes and experiences.
What is the effect of 3rd person point of view?
Third person limited gives your readers access to a character’s inner thoughts and emotions, much the same way that first-person narration does. The difference is that there’s a critical sliver of distance between the protagonist and narrator, which will change the way the main character is portrayed.
