Paul's Case Analysis
Point of View
The story is first told in the P.O.V. of Paul's teachers. It is in these few paragraphs that we get tot see how others feel about Paul and we see Paul's defiant and flippant nature. We are also introduced to Paul's past which shines some light on what may have led Paul to his self-alienation. Around paragraph 11 the P.O.V. shifts to telling Paul's story and we are able to understand even more his feeling of contempt towards his teachers, classmates, family, his boring life, and his inability to escape it fully. By having the P.O.V. stay focused on Paul we are able to feel everything he feels but by being 3rd person we are left with some mystery and many parts of the story are left up to our own interpretation.
