584 words - 3 pages

A framed narrative is a story within a story; within sometimes yet another story this structure leads the reader to question of the reasons behind each of the narrations. The narrator of the story then becomes an actual character with concomitant shortcomings, limitations, prejudices, and motives. The result of inserting one or more small stories within the body of a larger story that encompasses the smaller ones is to give the reader a more effective perception of the context within the stories. When the narrator speaks in first person it gives the narrator the ability to enter the plot speaking in the voice of personal narrative, and sometimes "know" as much or more than some third-person narrators who are supposedly "omniscient

Pechorin can be seen as the controller of the story. The action of the other characters depends on their perception towards Pechorin and what he does in his stories; he is almost the narrator in same way he is writing the base of the novel. The novel is told around his personal doings. “What was it? Do tell me” page 18. This shows the narrator is interested in Pechorin life.

Lermontov was a Russian poet, the way as which Lermontov perceives a hero is not necessarily the way an average Russian would have perceived a hero during the 1940s,and because of that its became one thing that has made is this book so special and unique.
