Discuss the type of narration used in “man lands on the moon” ,and explain why you think the narrative style is effective in emphasizing the story’s meaning?
“Man Lands on the Moon” by Sindiwe Magona uses the first person type of narration. The story’s lead character, Makhulu, tells the story from her own point of view. Using first person narrative style is important in emphasizing the story’s meaning because it helps to build on the conflict and irony in the story. First person point of view presents happenings through the narrator’s own experience and awareness of the true state of affairs. Makhulu tells the chronicles of a man walking on the moon from her own understanding rather than from facts.
