How to Read: Title & Setting

Purpose of setting—mood

Mood—an atmosphere readers almost feel—can be evoked by the author's choice of setting.

A dark and stormy night—the most cliched of all literary settings—establishes an eerie mood for ghost tales set in spooky mansions. A bright, sunny afternoon could never achieve the foreboding atmosphere the author wants.
