Tone

To create tone in short stories authors use specific words to give the story different attitudes. These feelings can be sad and gloomy or excited and on cloud nine. Tone is the general character or attitude of a place, piece of writing or situation. In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis”, by James Hurst, the author sets a very woebegone tone by including a very lugubrious phraseology. In the story, Brother says “ The flower garden was strained with rotting brown magnolia petals and ironweeds grew rank”. By including vocabulary like strained, rotting, and ironweeds, the author creates the tone of anguish.

Imagery

Imagery- “..saw-tooth fern, down into green dimness where the palmetto fronds whispered ny the stream. I lifted him out and set him down in the soft rubber grass beside a tall pine. The word imagery is the use of figurative description or illustrations in a story.
