"Point of view" changes whenever a different character speaks, or the author filters the story through a difference character's perceptions. However, the author's perspective in terms of authorial view of a situation or of life in general -- that's unquantifiable. Many, many books have been written to quantify an author's perspective. Though I'm not sure quantify would be the best term, it still can be done. "How often does Marx reference women as domestic partners, and why is that significant?" would be an example of a question leading to the quantification of an author's perspective. O.K. Back to the question at hand. A shift in pronouns can show a change, so can a shift in the sensory words, the style, or any other significant change in the flow of the text. The writer's goal is to make these transitions clear, so they should give a couple obvious clues (should...)
