ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of first person narrators as fictional characters. The author notes that the relevant information conveyed by the narrator is pure in fiction as the story may entail his/her essence. She points out that narrators tend to be flat sometimes, such as when they refuse to acknowledge their own tales' implications. For her, a good tale has a surprise or that it must have had an alternative result. She considers insight as the final gift of a first person story. She also mentions some narrative stories including "Blessed Assurance," "Powder" and "Araby."
