I understand what the question is asking for but I do not know exactly how to write it. Here is the question. The way a story is told and the voice that tells it are important parts of a story. Choose at least two stories from Collection 3. Analyze the role that the narrator plays in each story. Consider whether the narrator's level of knowledge is limited or omniscient, and whether or not the narrator is reliable. Finally, analyze the narrator's impact on the story's message or overall effect. The two stories I chose are Snow by Julia Alvarez and The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant. I have Snow part done this is it In the story Snow I think the narrator knew much of what she was talking about. Her point of view of everything made me feel as though she had gone though this herself. In the ways she portrayed everything made it relatable and everything she said I believe was reliable. As kids we sometimes get things confused and even more so if we don't know much of another country. The overall effect of the story left me happy and wanting to read it again. The narrators impact left me thinking about me when I was a child and how I did things. To me this was a very good story and well written. ----BUT I do not understand how to write about the necklace. What are some of your thoughts on the story please help?
These are your directions. I don't see that you have answered all 4 points in what you have written about "Snow."
1. Analyze the role that the narrator plays in each story.
Who is the narrator? One of the characters? Someone on the outside looking in? First-person (is the story told from the "I" point of view?)?
2. Consider whether the narrator's level of knowledge is limited or omniscient,
3. and whether or not the narrator is reliable.
4. Finally, analyze the narrator's impact on the story's message or overall effect.
