Transcript of Mood in Literature

Mood in Literature
Mood
Mood
is the general atmosphere created by the author's words. It is the feeling the reader gets from reading those words. It may be the same, or it may change from situation to situation.
Common Words To Describe Mood:
Frightening
Frustrating
Gloomy
Happy
Joyful
Authors set a mood in literature by showing an emotion through words. The way a person feels about an idea, event, or another person can be quickly determined through facial expressions, gestures, and in the tone of voice used.

Writers use many devices to create mood. They can do this by including:
images
dialogue
setting
plot
