“LATHER AND NOTHING ELSE” BY HERNANDO TÉLLEZ
NELSON LITERACY, P. 152
For homework, answer one of the following questions:
1. What is the point of view used in the story? Why is it effective? (see definition of Point of View below)
2. Describe the conflict in the story? Include how it developed and how/if it was resolved (use RACES)
Definition of Point of View:
First person is used when the main character is telling the story. This is the kind that uses the 'I' narrator. As a reader, you can only experience the story through this person's eyes. So you won't know anything about the people or events that this character hasn't personally experienced.
Third person POV is used when your narrator is not a character in the story. Third person uses the 'he/she/it' narrator and it is the most commonly used POV in writing.
We are working on expresssing events in the past. Students are to complete Exercise A. Workbook p. 4.
