Example of Third Person Writing

There is no first person character in third person writing. Third person writing literally means writing using the third person as the thematic and grammatical context. This is common in fiction, where the author attempts to establish a character position or role for primary identities in the narrative. Syntax in third person writing is simple, because there are no other tenses. Third person writing is also used in musical lyrics and poetry.

Examples of Third Person Writing:

History of Mr. Polly: H.G.Wells
War and Peace: Leo Tolstoy
20,000 Leagues under the sea: Jules Verne
The Magic Pudding: Norman Lindsay
The Wind in the Willows: Kenneth Greene
