Mood refers to the emotional atmosphere or overall feeling created by a work of literature. It is the way that the author uses various elements of the work such as language, tone, setting, and imagery to evoke a particular emotional response in the reader. The mood can be dark, mysterious, hopeful, joyful, somber, or any other emotional state that the author wishes to convey. The mood is often closely related to the tone of the work, which refers to the author’s attitude toward the subject matter. Together, the mood and tone of a work can greatly influence the reader’s experience and interpretation of the text.
