Here are some narrative types and voices that are worth mentioning in the exam: 

First person narrative - a narrator who speaks as 'I', often a character who plays in a story, although it may not be his or her own story

Interior monologue - first person, as though the narrator is verbalising thier thoughts as they occur

Multiple voices - more than one narrative voice used in a single text. Can be first or third person or a mixture of the two. (e.g. Beloved)

Second person address - a narrative voice that direclty addressed the reader as "you". It's rare for a whole text to do this, as it's very hard to maintain

Unreliable narrator - a narrator who is perhaps self -




very good!
