These are the first three sentences of a WIP: Objectively in my mind as the writer, this is the statue: Just a plain old boring old statue of Demeter. It didn't move. It wasn't made for him. The POV character see's it this way because of his feelings about the goddess. So, is this an unreliable narrator? If no other contrasting description of the statue is given, does the text supersede the author's idea about the statue? Can a single POV character give an unreliable description of something if that description is never challenged in the text? Can the author die?
