Point of View Point of view is the position from which the narrator views its subject It is a technical term for how a story is told. Descriptive phrases help us form a special view point of the story. “He said cruely” or “she wined viciously”—we begin to connect. First person point of view is the more limited, giving only one vantage point. It does, however, forge a bond between reader and narrator. It uses “I” and “we.” Third person point of view is more versatile. You get to know characters through the interactions of another character. Omniscient narration is the all knowing. You get all the thoughts and words for you to shaped and comprehend. The reader’s problem comes down to knowing how to take the things presented to him. This means paying special attention to any limitations in the narrator’s viewpoint. If the viewpoint is “partial”—in the sense of incomplete or in the sense of biased opinion—the reader must be ready to compensate in appropriate ways. Context Conditions including facts, social/historical back ground, time and place, surrounding a given situation.

You Belong With Me lyrics Songwriters: Rose, Liz; Swift, Taylor Alison; You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset She's going off about something that you said 'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do I'm in the room, it's a typical Tuesday night I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like And she'll never know your story like I do But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find That what you're looking for has been here the whole time If you could see that I'm the one who understands you Been here all along, so why can't you see? You, you belong with me, you belong with me Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself Hey, isn't this easy? And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down You say you're fine, I know you better than that Hey, what ya doing with a girl like that? She wears high heels, I wear sneakers She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find That what you're looking for has been here the whole time If you could see that I'm the one who understands you Been here all along, so why can't you see? You belong with me Standing by and waiting at your back door All this time how could you not know? Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me Oh, I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're 'bout to cry And I know your favorite songs and you tell me 'bout your dreams Think I know where you belong, think I know it's with me Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you? Been here all along, so why can't you see? You belong with me Standing by and waiting at your back door All this time, how could you not know? Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me You belong with me Have you ever thought just maybe You belong with me? You belong with me.
