How author viewpoint influences writing

It affects the path the story takes.
The statements added
And the opinions about the subject
Writing Style
How a work is written rather then what is written.
May be described as:
In which a writer gives an advance hint of what is to come later in the story.
“Life were better ended by their hate,
Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love”

In the balcony scene, Juliet is concerned about Romeo’s safety as she fears her kinsmen may catch him. Romeo says, in the above lines, that he would rather have her love and die sooner than not obtain her love and die later. Eventually, he gets her love and dies for her love, too.
Main idea or an underlying meaning of a literary work that may be stated directly or indirectly.
Love and friendship are frequently occurring themes in literature. They generate emotional twists and turns in a narrative and can lead to a variety of endings: happy, sad or bittersweet. The following are famous literary works with love and friendship themes:

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Figurative Language
Language used creatively to express things in great detail.
To force readers to imagine or intuit what an author means with an expression or statement.
Literary Criticism
When other people criticizes and give their personal opinion about other people work
So the people who's work is being literary criticized take others opinion in count for future pieces.
It can do this by giving a word or phrase a specific meaning that may be different than the literal definition. Sometimes figurative language compares two things in such a way that you find the comparison interesting and descriptive.
Without a theme the story wouldn't have a topic.
To provoke suspense and thrill to the story
Character traits
They are words used to describe how characters act during certain situations or what kind of people they are.
Some positive character traits might include:

Some negative character traits might include:
To help identify and difference the characters in the story easily.
Convincing arguments an author uses to appeal to the reader's sense of logic, ethics, and emotion.
Persuasive appeals
A financial adviser says that buying a certain stock would be a wise investment for your money.​
Who would you believe? You would most probably believe the financial adviser because he advises people for a living. The teenage boy has no credibility in this subject. The financial adviser used ethos to prove himself right.​
A teenage boys says differently about the same stock. He says it would not be an unwise investment.
To persuade the reader to take action or agree with the author's point of view.
"Word Order"

Determines how the chosen words are used to form a sentence.
Incorrect - While watching a movie, people who text on their phone are very annoying.


Correct - People who text on their phone while watching a movie are very annoying.
It's necessary for communication without confusion. It has to do with the grammatically correct order of words in a sentence.
Sound devices:
consonance/ assonance, alliteration

«Alliteration: Repetition of initial sounds of words in a row. Example: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. (Of course, alliteration is not always so concentrated)
«Assonance: Repetition of internal vowel sounds of words close together in poetry. Example: I made my way to the lake.
«Consonance: Repetition of internal or ending consonant sounds of words close together in poetry. Example: I dropped the locket in the thick mud.
