To Kill a Mockingbird
Tone vs. Mood
Setting, Tone & Mood in To Kill a Mockingbird
By: Sophia Nelson
Book: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee
Examples of Tone & Mood
The story, To Kill a Mockingbird, takes place in the 1930s in the made up town of Maycomb, Alabama
This is important because at the time racism and segregation were major problems in the South
Also at the time Jim Crow Laws were strictly enforced which separated the rights or colored and white people

"Judge Taylor was polling the jury: 'Guilty...guilty...guilty...guilty...' I peeked at Jem: his hands were white from gripping the balcony rail, and his shoulders jerked as if each 'guilty' was a separate stab between them."
"It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do."
"Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win."
"Atticus was feeble: he was nearly fifty."
"Cal," I asked, "why do you talk black to the-to your folks when you know it's not right?"
"They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect to their opinions, but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself."
Setting vs. Tone & Mood
Setting, tone and mood are related as literary elements because they all play a key part in storytelling
Setting and Tone
Setting affects tone in the way that the author is using the particular place, and time for a bigger, deeper reason. It plays into how the author feels and is used as a means to get a message across.
Setting and Mood
Setting affects mood also in the way that the setting has an effect on how events play out in a novel, which twists the readers reactions and emotions.

Setting and Tone
In the novel Harper Lee uses the setting of the 1930s in the South to get her opinion of racism and segregation across. Her tone throughout the book shows her disdain for the separation and poor treatment of colored people. If she had used another time or place for the story it would not have had the same impact that it did on people and literature.
Setting and Mood
The setting of the novel plays a key part in developing the mood and the feelings that the reader has. The setting of the story, in the South in the 1930s, is such a serious time that readers have strong feelings and opinions that grow even stronger while reading the book.
The speaker's or narrator's attitude towards the subject or audience.
The general feeling or atmosphere that a piece of writing creates within the reader.
