The Sniper Smore
By: Kiarra Randall
Setting is the place or type of surroundings where something is positioned or where an event takes place. The story takes place in Dublin, Ireland in the 1920's.
"Dublin lay enveloped in darkness but for the dim light of the moon that shone through fleecy clouds casting a pale light as of approaching dawn over the streets & the dark waters of the liffey."
Tone is a literary compound of composition, which encompasses the attitudes toward the subject and toward the audience implied in a literary work .The tone is dark, foreboding, and always filled with tension in the anticipation of violence.
In the story it repeats words like "dark" and "night" as well as words such as "faded," "dim," "silent," and guns "barking."
