Abstract: In this thesis, Smith's special third-person omniscient and "downstage" narrators are explored as framing perspectives, voices of objectivity, and voices of contrived language. Her use of the first person is discussed as an Appalachian storyteller, as a biased teller, and as a modern voice.
