A narrator who does not appear in the story as a character but is usually capable of revealing the thoughts and motives of one or more characters.
Innocent or naïve narrator
A character who fails to understand all the implications of the story he or she tells. The innocent narrator-often a child or childlike adult-is frequently used by an author to generate irony, sympathy, or pity by creating a gap between what the narrator perceives and what the reader knows.
A narrator who-intentionally or unintentionally-relates events in a subjective or distorted manner. The author usually provides some indication early on in such stories that the narrator is not to be completely trusted.
