the act or process of telling a story a recounting of events, especially in chronological order, as in a poem's story or a drama's exposition
A narrator is the person who recounts the events. Narrators in stories can be trustworthy or untrustworthy. For example, if a story is told by someone who is insane, lying, or deluded, as in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart," that narrator would be considered untrustworthy. A narrative is the name given to the account.
We'll go over three types of narration in a moment: first person, second person, and third person. Each serves a distinct function. Narration examples include Sherlock Holmes. But, before we get into some narration examples, it's important to understand the difference between a narrative and narration.
