Pack-A-Punch Mini Project

By: Blake Ommen

Mood

What is it

-The general atmosphere created by the author’s words; the feeling the reader gets from reading those words


Why use it

-To make the reader have feeling from the authors words


Example

-The only other sounds the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

-I loved my friend.

He went away from me.

There's nothing more to say.

The poem ends,

Soft as it began -

I loved my friend:

-She kissed me on the cheek,

I'm so mad it's hard to speak,

That's kiss I must erase,

Goodbye!

I'm off to wash my face.

-People wait

All week

For Friday,

All year

For Summer,

All Life

For happiness.

-I feel as empty as the night sky

without the stars and the moon

Tone

What is it

-The attitude of an author toward a piece (author specific feelings)


Why use it

-An author could feel sarcastic, sad, encouraging, etc.


Examples

-The only other sound the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

-Sun firing,

trunks crashing,

arms flying,

earth rising

from the surface of the moon,

-Part of me is a blackberry black-

tired and depressed

gloomy and alone,

feeling like none cares.

-Some times I feel like a blue-little energetic and happy

good sense of humor and laugh a lot

and I feel like playing all day.

-For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side

Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride,

In the sepulchre there by the sea,

In her tomb by the sounding sea.
