Manipulating the distance between readers and our characters is a key element to creating compelling narratives. We'll take a look at how narrative distance is enhanced/maintained/diminished through the use of multiple points of view in some great narratives including "The Dead" by James Joyce and the prologue in A House For Mr. Biswas by V.S. Naipaul. Handouts of these two texts will be available but it will be helpful if you're familiar with them beforehand. I'll draw on other examples as well.
