Tone vs mood

In case any of y'all are wondering, the difference between tone and mood is that tone is the feelings the author shows while mood is the feeling that is happening in the work. For example, if an author is talking about religion and he uses negative words then that's tone, but if it's a suspenseful scene, then that's mood.

Not really...

Mood is the reader's feeling.

Tone is the writer's feeling.

It is READER vs. WRITER.

tone and mood

Tone refers more to the author's feeling about the story/character/event, while the mood is the emotion or feeling of the overall story, created for the reader. For example, the author of a story could write with a sarcastic tone toward the story, but the mood could be gloomy and dark.

Would it make sense to say

Would it make sense to say that the author's tone toward nature is admiring and his tone toward Winter is spiteful? Or would those be considered his attitude?

Tone is the attitude the

Tone is the attitude the author is taking towards his character: it is present in almost all literature, and only in truly objective accounts of facts or story lines where the diction choices are very sterile or simply do not reference a character is there no tone. Tone has been around almost since the beginning of man.

No

No, the tone is only displayed by the author. Its about the author's style of writing.

slang

Could the use of slang be considered as the tone of story? (I have to discuss the effect of 1 literary device in A&P - John Updike on our interpretation of the story/characters)

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 11/27/2011 - 19:59
Yes. Slang implies a number

Yes.

Slang implies a number of different tones depending one what is used.

You could say a narrator is carefree or relaxed due to slang.

You could also point to angst or frustration and break down of polite sentiment.

No

Slang would fall under diction.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 21:11
ACTUALLY...

You're real close. It is diction, as in word choice, but regarding tone and mood... Slang is part of colloquialism, a rhetorical device that is defined as "the use of a word or phrase used in everyday language. It is often inappropriate for formal writing." Colloquialisms, such as "ain't" and "y'all", attribute to mood by helping to define a character or add reality to a setting, such as the antebellum south. So, slang would not fall under tone, but it falls under mood.
