As an aspect of narration, point of view is crucial in the process of composition. Indeed, every narrative exhibits some point of view. This is evident in the analysis carried out in this work. In the work, the concept of point of view is discussed. This section explores the theoretical understanding of point of view. The analysis proper dwells on the four planes of point of view: the phraseological, the ideological, the perceptual and the psychological. To make the concept of point of view clear and easy to understand, the analysis draws practical examples from various Kiswahili texts. After an in-depth analysis of planes of point of view, some space is devoted to the analysis of internal and external points of view. These are the main types of point of view and the planes discussed can fall in any or both of them. Finally, conclusions are drawn on how point of view is rendered and how it works in Kiswahili novels. What is evident from the work is that some aspects of point of view are obtrusively used by some writers to achieve desired effects. Another important aspect is that point of view shows how people use language to enhance or affect their relationships.
