person narrator. We know it from sentences like...(I,me)
third - person - limited - narrator
The narrator can only see what Mr.X sees, not more.
He is not the Mr.X himself because he uses the third
person and keeps his distance to him. So it must be a
narrator outside the story who sees through the boys eyes.
third - person - observe - narrator
He is outside the story and does not look into the
mind of any person.
third - person - omniscient - narrator
The narrator is outside the story. he is informed about
everything. He knows what individual characters think
and feel and he adds his own view. So he is all knowing.
