Characteristics of a Short Story
-a short story can be read in one sitting
-a short story involves characters in conflict
-a short story has few characters

-the purpose of a short story is to impart to the reader a message about life

Character(s) – Any person in the story.
Protagonist: the main character of the story
Antagonist: the character or force in conflict with the main character

Point of view – Point of view is the position from which the narrator tells a story. There are four main points of view:

  • First person: the narrator is a character in the story, relating events using personal pronouns such as “I” and “we”. The narrator can only relate to those events in which he/she is present.
  • Omniscient: from the Greek word meaning “all knowing.” The narrator is not a character in the story, but rather an observer who can be in all places at once and know the thoughts of all characters.
  • Limited Omniscient: similar to omniscient in that the narrator is an observer, not a character, but the limited omniscient narrator knows the thoughts of only one character and can relate only the events at which that character is present.
  • Second person (Objective): an attempt to make the reader a character in the story using the pronoun, “you”.
