Foreshadowing (Put in your scrapbook) Presentation of of hints and clues that tip the reader off as to what is to come later in the work. It can be subtle, such as rain in the beginning of a story to suggest something bad is going to happen, or more obvious. Example: In the prologue of "Romeo and Juliet": "A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life.“ foreshadows the death of Romeo and Juliet.Romeo and Juliet What does this photo foreshadow about young Skywalker?
Symbolism (Put in your scrapbook) The use of a word or an object to stand for another word or object. These words or objects have deeper meaning than they appear to have. Example: The dove symbolizes peace What symbols do we see in this image? see in this image from “Love the Way you Lie”?
Mood vs. Tone What is the difference between TONE and MOOD? (put in your scrapbook!) Tone: the attitude a writer takes towards a subject or character: serious, humorous, sarcastic, ironic, satirical, tongue-in-cheek, solemn, objective. Think of it as the AUTHOR ‘s attitude about the subject. Mood: the atmosphere that creates the emotions that you feel while you are reading. Think of it as how the AUDIENCE feels. Some literature makes you feel sad, others joyful, still others, angry. The main purpose for some poems is to set a mood.
How does TONE lead to MOOD? After determining the attitude of the author or speaker, you should then consider how the tone makes you feel. This is called the mood.
Tone/Mood Application A) Watch the following two trailers for upcoming films with the same subject. However, each film has been created with a different tone. B) Create a T-chart on your paper with “Huntsman” on the right and “Mirror” on the left. 1.What is the subject? 2.What is the tone or filmmaker’s tone toward the subject? 3.What is the mood? 4.How does the tone affect the mood of the viewer?
Film Trailers Mirror, Mirror http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=903BvFne8go&feature=relmfu The Huntsman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VY67V0wOlz8 How do the tone and mood differ in the two? How did the filmmakers change the mood with the same subject?
Does mood really matter? 1. As you watch the video, select THREE words that express the tone that best represents the attitude of the trailer’s creators. 2. What mood can best describe your feelings after watching Video #1? 1. In the next video we will watch, film-makers are trying to recut the film in a very different way, select THREE words to express the tone of this version. 2. What mood can best describe your feelings after watching Video #2?
