“The story-teller is the voice of authority in relation to the audience: He knows how the story ends and because of this chooses which events to include and which to exclude, which to reveal to the audience and when. In relation to the characters in the story, too, the narrator is in a position of superior knowledge: He knows the real as well as the intended consequences of their actions, and many plots turn on this distinction. This leads some theorists to posit three distinguishable points of view on the events in a story: those of story-teller, audience, and characters.”

— David Carr, Experience and History (p. 109)
