There are several types of third-person points of view in storytelling. You shall find the third person limited or subjective, the multiple third people limited, as well as the third person omniscient points of view. The third person omniscient point of view considers all points of view as one. It shall look at the story from all angles and viewpoints, with nothing held back as in the other types of view. There are several advantages to using this type of view in your story.
You will fun it to come naturally as a style of writing. If you look at most of the stories you ever heard, they all were in the third person omniscient point of view. There was the narrator who went ahead and told the story. This has made most people to respond to this style of writing expectantly and naturally. You thus wish to know more when you find the story to be covered in this perspective.
This style also gives the author more material to share as they have all the information about all the characters. The omniscient point of view allows the author inside the minds and perspective of all the characters, thus bringing a deeper sense of understanding to the story. This helps you appreciate why certain characters reacted to something in the story the way they did. You thus shall see the reasons why people had to do the things they did as the story unfolds further.
This style is also the best for carrying the authoritative voice of an author. In the other points of view, the story shall be limited to the heads and eyes of one or a few people. But this style of storytelling helps the author expand their vision and delivery of the story. The author is in charge of the way the story’s details shall be revealed. We listen to your voice more than the limitations of one character.
This style also works best when you are telling an epic story. There is no better style to tell a story that covers many years, with many characters in it, across vast lands and territories. You cannot pull the same feat using the other limited points of view. The rest are preferred in other less engaging styles of writing. Great epics are thus best served through this method.
You will also get to show the action in a story in a much better way. There is the consideration of different points of view which makes it easy for you to show the action scenarios. Most action is not limited to one person’s acts. You will therefore not manage to show it well when you think of that one person.
