Now, let's discuss tone and style.
Tone is how the author or speaker feels about a character or situation in a text. You can determine the tone by the words that the characters say or what happens to the character. An author's tone can be optimistic, pessimistic, hopeless, frustrated, indifferent, agitated, desperate, content, and more. It's all about how the author feels.
Style: Style is the way the author writes. It's the
-words chosen (words might be silly, dark, nonsense, etc)
-the length and complexity of the sentences
-whether or figurative language is used or the author is saying EXACTLY what it meant,
- whether or not imagery is used.
Let's look at some examples.....
Example 1 What’s up man? You are the next Labron James. You have mad bball skills! You are like a hawk the way you fly by people. They can’t catch ya! Fly, man, fly!
You could say this author’s style is figurative and informal. You could also say that he/she uses short sentences and imagery. The speaker also uses 2nd person point of view.
You are going to describe the style of each example. Is it literal or figurative? Formal or informal? Are the sentences long or short and simple? Is imagery used? What POV is used?
