Question Description

I don’t understand this Poetry question and need help to study.

Tone can portray a variety of emotions ranging from solemn, grave, and critical to witty, wry and humorous. Tone helps the reader ascertain the writer’s feelings towards a particular topic and this in turn influences the reader’s understanding of the story" (Tone, 2010, para.1).

Initial Response: In this unit, you have read three famous pieces of literature that were written by Hemingway, Frost, and O'Brien.

It is important in any literary response to use text examples (words, phrases, lines) to defend your response. Be sure to use in text citations for your examples and end with an APA reference citation.
