We, You & I: Experimenting with Points of View

All Levels | First-person plural novels give voice to the previously invisible, compelling writers to offer their own version of identity beyond a perceived and privileged mainstream. But what makes us so uncomfortable about the first-person plural? We resist collective or group identity because we think of ourselves as individuals, not communities or coalitions. In this course, we’ll examine practical issues of the collective first person, examining specific moves of narrative distance.
