Narration is the use of a written or spoken commentary to convey a story to an audience. Narration encompasses a set of techniques through which the creator of the story presents their story, including:
- Narrative point of view: the perspective (or type of personal or non-personal “lens”) through which a story is communicated.
- Narrative voice: the format through which a story is communicated.
- Narrative tense: the grammatical placement of the story’s time-frame in the past, the present, or the future.
