  1. 1. Tone Voice of the Speaker
  2. 2. What is tone? The attitude with which the speaker or narrator treats his or her subject. • Tone is similar to tone of voice. • The same adjectives can be used to describe the narrator's tone. • You can't hear the narrator, so you have to infer the tone from his or her words.
  3. 3. Tone is not Mood Tone: how the narrator or speaker feels about their subject. Mood: how the reader is supposed to feel when reading the work. Tone Narrator Mood Reader
  4. 4. Example Tone Words Some examples of words that describe tone. • Anxious • Appreciative • Concerned • Cynical • Depressed • Foreboding • Grateful • Grave • Hopeful • Jealous • Loving • Melencholy • Peaceful • Pleasant • Respectful • Sensitive • Timid • Wise
  5. 5. Compare and Contrast… 1 Life's city ways are dark, Men mutter by, the wells Of the great waters moan. O death, O sea, O tide, The waters moan like bells. No light, no mark, The soul goes out alone On seas unknown. 2 The skies are sown with stars tonight, The sea is sown with light, The hollows of the heaving floor Gleam deep with light once more, The racing ebb-tide flashes past And seeks the vacant vast, A wind steals from a world asleep And walks the restless deep. • These passages both talk abut the sea. • One is very dark and dreary. • The other is bright and happy. • Tone makes a big difference in the mood.
  6. 6. Review • Tone and mood are different but related. • Tone describes the narrator's attitude or voice. • Mood is how the reader is supposed to feel. • Ex: A reader can feel scared for a character even if the narrator is indifferent.
  7. 7. Practice 1. Read the passage. 2. Describe the tone of the narrator or speaker. 3. Explain your answer using evidence from the text.
  8. 8. 1 Piping down the valleys wild, Piping songs of pleasant glee, On a cloud I saw a child, And he laughing said to me: ‘Pipe a song about a Lamb!’ So I piped with merry cheer. ‘Piper, pipe that song again.’ So I piped: he wept to hear.
  9. 9. Suggested Answer This speaker's tone is pleasant or happy. Explanation I believe this because he is piping with "merry cheer" and "Piping songs of pleasant glee." This shows that he is very happy.
  10. 10. 2 Dearest, forgive that with my clumsy touch I broke and bruised your rose. I hardly could suppose It were a thing so fragile that my clutch Could kill it, thus.
  11. 11. Suggested Answer This speaker's tone is apologetic or regretful. Explanation I believe this because she says, "Dearest, forgive." This shows that she feels bad about what she did and she wants forgiveness.
  12. 12. 3 And still of a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees, When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, A highwayman comes riding-- Riding-- riding-- A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn- door.
  13. 13. Suggested Answer This speaker's tone is spooky or frightening. Explanation I believe this because she describes the moon as a "ghostly galleon," or a spooky ship.
  14. 14. 4 One asked of regret, And I made reply: To have held the bird, And let it fly; To have seen the star For a moment nigh, And lost it Through a slothful eye; To have plucked the flower And cast it by; To have one only hope-- To die.
  15. 15. Suggested Answer This speaker's tone is regretful or depressed. Explanation I believe this because he says, "To have one only hope-- / To die." Hoping for death is about as depressing as it gets.
  16. 16. 5 When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it; When the meadows laugh with lively green, And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene; When Mary and Susan and Emily With their sweet round mouths sing ‘Ha ha he!’
  17. 17. Suggested Answer This speaker's tone is joyful or cheerful. Explanation I believe this because the speaker says stuff like, “the green woods laugh with the voice of joy.” The speaker chooses to describe the woods as laughing with a voice of joy. That is a very cheerful way to describe the noises of the forest.
