I'm just curious to know what you all think about the most neglected point of view in writing: second person. I ask because I wrote a story with a second person scene last year, and about half the people I showed it to really disliked it, and half the people liked it a lot. I can justify why I used it: the "you" character is a slave, and using 2nd person lets us get inside her head while showing that she is too disenfranchised to be allowed her own voice. But all this literary analysis type explanation aside, 2nd person was really more of an experiment and challenge for me, and I wanted to try it. I kept it because I liked how it sounded, but a lot of readers thought it was just plain bizarre to have a piece written in 2nd. While I kept it for my final draft (it was for school), it's one of the choices I'm not 100% sure I should have made. So what do you think about second person? Have you ever seen it work? Do you think it can be used effectively? Or are third and first person just much more desirable in every way?
