what if I say that the tone of 'Legal Alien' is uncomfortable and complicated as she describes the harships being faced?
And for Harlem, can I just say that the tone seems calm as he compares the deffered dreams to unpleasant things? ..I really need help with this...

Thanks

    Are you clear on what tone is?

    "Tone is the attitude that an author takes toward the audience, the subject, or the character. Tone is conveyed through the author's words and details."

    You need to think a little deeper.

    Does Harlem "feel" calm....Look at these words -
    dry up, fester sore— stink rotten
    crust sags heavy explode


    Uncomfortable...yes definitely. Again look at the words

    perhaps exotic,
    perhaps inferior, definitely different,
    a handy token
    sliding back and forth
    between the fringes of both worlds
    by masking the discomfort
    of being pre-judged
