Editorialising
“Told in the past tense...by an adult speaker who structures
his story carefully, editorializing and revising incidents thatchanged the course of his teenage years and shaped himhis attitude towards others. Significantly, this mature
perspective confirms the speaker‟s ability to recast an
emotionally volatile time as an open ended story
.”
 -
Elinor Ann Walker in „Redeeming Loneliness in RichardFord‟s “Great Falls” and Wildlife‟.
 
 
 An element of style: Earl andJackie
Both Earl and Jackie editorialise. It is what stops their storiesbeing solely confessional and is what makes their storiesmore personal and important to the speaker themselves. It iswhat allows the stories to become meditations andreflections, rather than simply confessions of times gone bad.Editorial moments in the text are moments of self-reflection.These are moments where the narrator adds in thinking fromthe present, stuff that the younger version of the narrator 
couldn‟t have known in the past. It tends to come when the
narrator is commenting on the action.
