POV = Point of View

Janet Burroway (2007) notes that a PN-POV is a character who, ‘sits on the edge of the action and becomes our eyes and ears in the story’ (p. 56). This type of narration requires further study. At this moment, I view that a PN-POV differs from an Omniscient POV (O-POV), in that an O-POV sees all, past, present and future, whereas, a PN-POV sees from a specific, on the ground, perspective.
