Shift is from Chris’s point of view, first person. An example of this is when Chris is coming to Morgan and Effies to talk to Win. On page 215, Chris says, “ He didn’t say anything. I have the sensation that we are wrestling again.” This shows that it is first person because it narrates the fact that Win didn’t say anything and then he says “I” and “we”. In the another example in the book, Chris is also talking in first person. An example is on page 81 when Abe Ward is investigating him and Chris asks, “ Do you think I did something to Win or not?” In this sentence, they use “I”. In Shift, the reader can get Chris’s thoughts and emotions/feelings. Usually first person novels have one main character and that is true for this novel.

The Youngers were strong and faithful, continuously trying to make their dreams become reality. Even though they were a family plagued by the hardship of poverty, they pushed on through whatever obstacles they encountered. Beneatha, one of the main characters, had the American dream of becoming a doctor, which is affected by her individualism, determination, and expressiveness.
As Beneatha describes the profound moment when she decided to become a doctor, her admirable, although childlike, determination and refusal to set limits on her future is illustrated. Beneatha says while discussing her dream, “...that was what one person could do for another, fix him up-sew up the problem, make him alright again. That was the most marvelous thing in the world...I wanted to do that. I always thought it was the one concrete thing in the world that a human being could do. Fix up the sick, you know - and make them whole again. This was truly being God…” (131). As Beneatha describes her dream with conviction, it is apparent how the decision to pursue her dream was created with faith in the practice, unconcerned with the efforts
