Point of View

Orozco’s most salient decision regarding point of view is the use of second-person perspective. Throughout the story, the narrator directly addresses the reader as if the reader were a new employee at the office. This creates a deep sense of immersion, because it causes the reader to imagine him/herself in the exact situation that is occurring in the story. Furthermore, the second-person perspective means that the new employee is never referred to using gender pronouns, such as ‘he’ or ‘she’. This negates the possibility of the reader knowing the gender of the new employee. This supplements the immersive nature of this narrative style because if the new employee’s gender were to conflict with that of the reader, then the reader would not be able to integrate him/herself into the story as deeply as he/she can with the second-person narration.
