What does third person limited mean?
Thanks for helping !!!


Third person point of view (POV) in literature has several variations -- omniscient, limited omniscient, etc.
Point of view: http://www.tnellen.com/cybereng/lit_terms/terms/2terms.html#Point%20of%20View

(First person POV is when the story is told from an "I" point of view -- in other words, the narrator is also a character in the story and is telling the story from his/her own POV.)

=)


Third person limited is a point of view in which the reader knows, in the third person, what a single character thinks, feels, etc. Third person limited will detail the /activities/ of other characters, but not their thoughts. An example of TPL-POV is Harry Potter.
