Transcript of Literary Terms-Mood, Tone, Irony

Literary Terms-Mood, Tone, Symbolism, and Irony
Mood is the feeling or atmosphere that a writer creates for the reader. The writer's use of connotations, figurative language, imagery, and descriptive details contribute to the mood.
Mood can also be created by the setting, tone, and theme
Tone is the writer's attitude toward his or her subject
Unlike mood, which refers to the emotional response of the reader to a work, tone reflects the feelings of the writer
Tone may be playful, formal, angry, serious, serene, outraged, baffled, etc.
Irony is the contrast between appearance and reality
Situational irony is a contrast between what is expected to happen and what actually does happen
Dramatic irony occurs when readers know more about a situation or a character in a story than the characters do
Verbal irony occurs when someone states one thing and means another
A symbol, in general terms, is anything that stands for something else.
More specifically, a symbol is a person, place, or object that has a concrete meaning in itself and also stands for something beyond itself, such as an idea or feeling.
Example Mood:
The moods evoked by the more popular short stories of Edgar Allen Poe, for example, tend to be gloomy, horrific, and desperate
