Third-Person Protagonist Narrator (3rd In A Series)


This POV has all the advantages of the First-Person Protagonist Narrator, discussed yesterday, except the writer loses in the personal touch that use of the pronoun I allows. However, it affords the writer the added advantage of using either the restricted or unrestricted omniscient power. This allows the writer to describe his/her protagonist and inform the reader of things the protagonist doesn't know.


Let's now look at the disadvantages.


1. The loss of the intimacy the pronoun I allows.


2. All the disadvantages of the First-Person Protagonist Narrator.


3. The danger for inexperienced writers to shift POV in midstream.


This last item is the greatest of the disadvantages. Avoiding it is a matter of projection. If the writer can truly project him/herself into the character when using this view, POV shift can usually be avoided. However, if they cannot, they must use unrestricted omniscient power exclusively when writing in this POV.
