Each witness had a different point of view of the assassination attempt from their place in the crowd.
Each one saw and experienced the moment differently.
You will see the tradespeople quietly engaged in the duties of their callings, so that, possibly, you may reproach yourself for superfluous raptures, you may entertain some doubt as to the justice of the ideas regarding the heroism of the defenders of Sevastopol which you have formed from stories, descriptions, and the sights and sounds on the northern side.
As you can see, second person almost turns the reader into a participant in the story.
There is another technique for this which is more popular and common modern fiction, which we’ll get to in the last section. We experience everything from Mary’s POV and only know what’s going on inside her head. It uses third person pronouns he/she/they, but instead of using the author’s voice the story is told in hero’s voice. The second brings you into Kali’s head by removing “interruptions” by the author like “she wondered” or “she knew.” The second example also uses more of Kali’s voice to reveal her thoughts, feelings, and perceptions–it’s almost as though she is the narrator, yet we stay in third person point of view.
Examples of third person omniscient novels: by Jane Austen. Unlike omniscient POV which is limitless, in this POV we are “limited” to Mary’s perspective. This brings the reader deep into the hero’s head and allows them to experience the story through the hero, feeling what they feel. Kali’s fidgety impatience had driven the details from her memory. This point of view can be challenging to write and is still emerging in fiction, but it’s quickly gaining popularity in the writing world because of the intimacy it creates between the reader and character.This is the style of third person that is more popular with modern readers. I could have sworn I left them on the kitchen table.” He turned away from her, his lips pressed in a flat line. He couldn’t even look her in the eye, he looked like a scolded, cowering dog. She drew in a deep breath and tried to soften her features. Essentially, it’s like first person except with he/she instead of I. She knew she should have left earlier, but her mother had kept on talking about the chickens. She should have left earlier, but her mother had kept on and on about the chickens. When you have a story that needs to be told from multiple perspectives, you have two options: you can either use third person omniscient and head hop, you can use multiple point of view.We remain in one character’s head throughout the story, only seeing things from their perspective. All “evidence” of the author’s hand (phrases like he said, she felt, he wondered, etc.) are also removed to erase the distance between the reader and hero. Example 1 (Third Person Limited): Kali hurried though the village. Example 2 (Deep POV): Kali hurried through the village. Multiple point of view can use third person limited, deep point of view, or first person.This time, I’ll limit the point of view to Mary’s perspective only: “Did you find your keys? In modern fiction, this technique is the preferred way of telling a story with multiple characters.Examples: If you need multiple perspectives to tell your story you might use multiple POV or experiment with third person omniscient..pagination .older .pagination .newer .post-nav-icon .older .post-nav-icon .newer .post-nav-icon .older .pager-heading .older .pager-title .newer .pager-heading .newer .pager-title .entry-meta .single-sharing-btns h3 .social-share-buttons.size-large .social-share-s.style-default [data-service] .social-share-buttons.size-large* .social-share-buttons.size-large.style-default label .social-share-buttons.style-default label .single-sharing-btns label .social-share-buttons label strong.tag-heading strong.tag-heading .entry-tags .gray-2-secondary a .entry-tags.gray-2-secondary img.pinimg .post-meta .comment_count .comment_count:after .post-share1 a i .post-share1 a .sharebox .sharebox:hover .meta-date .meta-date a .meta-date:after .subscribe-box .divider.narrow .subscribe-box:before, .subscribe-box .block:after .subscribe-box .block .subscribe-box .caption .subscribe-box .subscribe-box .email .subscribe-box div .subscribe-box .caption .subscribe-box .caption h4 .subscribe-box .subscribe-box .email .subscribe-box .subscribe-box .btn:hover .subscribe-box .email:focus .subscribe-box .caption p /************************************************* * 10.The plot revolved around an assassination attempt on the U. President, and in order to catch the would-be assassin government agents had to piece together clues from witnesses.The advantage of this POV is that the reader is drawn right into the character’s head.We see the world through their eyes and hear their thoughts. As such, however, the reader is limited to what the main character knows or sees, which can be either an advantage or disadvantage depending on the story you’re trying to tell.

Today, we call this switching back and forth between multiple character’s thoughts within the same scene “head hopping,” and it’s often frowned upon.
