Hi to all! I'm a new member of this forum, I am from Greece and English is my second language, so please feel free to correct me if any grammatical errors are made. My stories belong to the "epic fantasy" style, or if you prefer "epic fantasy" genre. the language of my writings is Greek but it would be a great pleasure for me to give a try translating some of my stories in order to share them with you. I could also gladly offer my help, if any of you is studying modern or ancient Greek and has questions about the language. As the thread's title suggests.. My question is about POV and tragic irony. When we are using third person limited there is a limitation in describing the emotions, feelings, and deeper thoughts of one specific character, on the other hand when writing in omniscient there is no limitation for us to stick with one character. So far so good, the problem is: does third person limited also means that the author is limited to the "line of sight" of that specific character, which means that I am obligated to describe to the readers only what the character is able to see with his eyes? Let me give an example. Lets say that the main character and his party, are heading towards the "bad guy's lair". At this point as an author I would like to inform the reader, about a possible future of the main character, by describing a scene in the "the bad guy's lair", in which the political enemies of the main character are plotting an ambush for our hero. By doing this I could create tragic irony, which means that the readers would know about the upcoming ambush which, on the other hand, the protagonist and his party would be unaware of. But, how I am supposed to to create this tragic irony if I am restricted to follow, as a "camera", only the protagonist and his party i.e I am limited to the protagonist's line of sight? The same problem applies in large battle scenes in which I would like to "zoom out" from my main character and give an epic feeling to the reader by describing a little bit of the battle from above. Thank you for reading!
