The different tones are examined in relation to the total imaginative structure of the stories. The paper illustrates how the author uses the tone to relate the meaning of the story to the reader.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history authors have used tone to convey emotion in the stories that they write. The tone can be between the author and the characters, or the author and the reader, but it is usually a combination of both types of tone. Tone can also change throughout a story. This can often cause the reader to feel drawn into the story as the tone of real life changes with time as well. One famed author, Henry James used tone to convey emotions between himself and his characters, as well as himself and the reader. In two of his stories, "The Real Thing" and "Brooksmith," James uses tone as a narrator to help the reader feel what he felt within the context of the story."
