Second Person Point of View

Second person isn’t a commonly used type of point of view, mostly because it kinda sounds funny. It almost feel like a more demanding tone. The pronoun ‘you’ is used with this type of point of view and typically sounds like this:

“Eventually you ascend the stairs to the street. You think of Plato’s pilgrims climbing out of the cave, from the shadow world of appearances toward things as they really are, and you wonder if it is possible to change in this life.”

— Jay McInerney, Bright Lights, Big City
