The narrator is an intergral part of Literature esp. thr novel form.
The narrator the omniscient,omnipotent seer of all-from the minutiae to the macrocosmic.
The flawed knave hadning out only what is relevant.
The wide eyed spectator watching with awe and wonder.

So what interesting narrators have any of you come across?

Stowaways on the Ark! I used to have that on video when I was a kid. All the singing bears and ants and the depiction of God just dropped in.

I'm just thinkin' of the idea of the narrator.
I'm considering a new narrative form.
A new and unlikely narrative form.

There is,of course,the idea of the Omniscient narrator,right?

I'm pretty sure the unreliable narrator is nothing new.

I like inebriated narrators too - check out Wormwood by Marie Corelli (you can read the first few pages on Amazon).
