Week 9 and 10:  Point of View III.

Point of View - Part III.

1.  Online Lecture for Week 9 and 10

2.  Assigned Reading:

                 Web page on William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury  

                 Hypermedia work: Fibonacci's Daughter by M.D. Coverley

There are not any good on-line linear print short stories that use multiple point of view, so I have assigned a web page on William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury   and a  Hypermedia work: Fibonacci's Daughter by M.D. Coverley (yours truly!)  Between the two of these, you can get a good idea of how multiple points of view have been used by some authors.  

3. Weekly Writing Exercise  -- Class Exercises #9

We are moving along with Point of View to Multiple Narrators!  Your third Point of View Assignment is to write a short piece (please, short!!! No more than one page!) in which you construct an omniscient  persona who has the overview ability to share the points of view of several other people with us.  See the model in Exercises9 for some assistance.  You need only begin the narration of the second POV - just a start so we can see the relationship between the controlling POV and the characters.   Again, here, the story content is not as important as the exercise with POV control!
