i am writing a book report and would like to make a good grade. i need to know the tone and mood of a story. i have looked it up in the dictionary and i am not sure if i have the correct definition. can you give me the defintion and an exaple to go by.
Here's a definition of tone:
Tone The author’s implicit attitude toward the reader or the people, places, and events in a work as revealed by the elements of the author’s style. Tone may be characterized as serious or ironic, sad or happy, private or public, angry or affectionate, bitter or nostalgic, or any other attitudes and feelings that human beings experience. See also style.
(From a dictionary of literature terms: http://www.bedfordstmartins.com/lite...glossary_t.htm)
The mood is the same as the standard dictionary definition- is the book happy, sad, dark, moving, etc?
