0_ Introduction to Narrative Voice in Literature Course
One aspect of style in prose writing is the narrative voice, or narrative perspective or point of view as it is sometimes called. However what does it mean and how can you identify it in a text? In literature, who is telling the story affects how a story can be received by the reader. Novels, short stories and the like are crafted by writers to produce an affect, and part of that crafting is in HOW a story is told; WHO is telling the story. In this course we will learn: what is the narrative voice, what are the different types of narrative voice, their characterisations, and how to identify them in literature. Who is this course for?
