Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Persona Literally

A persona is a mask. In literature, a persona is a speaker created by a writer to tell a story or to speak in a poem. A persona is not a character in a story or narrative, nor does a persona necessarily directly reflect the author’s personal voice. A persona is a separate self, created by and distinct from the author, through which he or she speaks. See also narrator.
