key terms-mood and tone


mood 1

Mood is the feeling that you get reading a story. This could be happiness, joy, sorrow, anger, suspicion, fear and loneliness. To describe the mood of a passage one should know the setting and the language used by the author.

 

 

Tone is the author’s attitude toward the subject. It can be identified by the choice of words and phrases. For example, ” lovable baby’ is positive and “fierce beast” is negative.
