I left out the last sentences on "fiction". Thank you very much, Writeacher!

1) The point of view can be fixed, when the story is told from a single point of view, as in Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, or shifting, when perspective moves from one character to another.
2) Furthermore, a point of view can be wide, as in the case of an omniscient narrator, who knows more than the single characters – or narrow, as in the case of a non-omniscient narrator, who offers the reader a limited point of view.
3) Style is the way in which an author chooses to tell the story. The story is told through dialogues, descriptions, narration of past or contemporary events, interior monologue and associations of ideas.
4) These different modes of narration are often interwoven. The language of novels varies extremely: syntax may be simple or complex, sentences short or long; the vocabulary used may be concrete and realistic or abstract and symbolical.
