Tone is the author's attitude.


Tone can include emotions. Some example of tone can be

  • Depressing
  • Sarcastic
  • Hopeful
  • Positive
  • Negative
  • Nuetral
  • Etc.

Tone can be determined through

  • The author's word choice
  • The Figurative Language of the text, which can be
  • Metaphor
  • Simile
  • Hyperbole
  • Idiom
  • Imagery
  • Personification

Tone will usually change through the story. The reason it will change is because the characters can and will start to

  • Have conversations
  • Have things happen to them that will affect their feelings and emotions.

The only way that you will be able to keep tone consistent is if there is a story where the characters stay the same the whole time. For example, maybe the character is only happy, and they are never sad or mad.

Tone will usually change, just because of different things that will happen throughout the story. It really depends on the story to determine how the tone will change.

I hope this helps :)
