    Be sure you have a good definition of the word "tone" as referring to Literature Terms:

    Tone expressesthe author's attitude toward his or her subject. Since there are as many tones in literature as there are tones of voice in real relationships, the tone of a literary work may be one of anger or approval, pride or piety-the entire gamut of attitudes toward life's phenomena. Poe's tales were of horror.
