Point of view is probably the most striking and significant stylistic feature of "Death in the Woods." The story is narrated in the first person by a man looking back on an event that happened in his hometown when he was a youth. The narration specifically shows the way a formative moment in the narrator's personal experience acquires meaning over time. Anderson's subtle manipulation of point of view highlights the fiction-making process and illustrates how an active imagination can create mystery and beauty.
