Tone reflects the attitude that an author or a narrator has towards a particular topic or character.

Tone can set a mood, highlight a character’s strengths or flaws, or clue the reader in on something important they should know. Tone can also reflect the author’s understanding of a topic, particularly in poetry, which enhances the reader's’ comprehension of meanings hidden behind heavily figurative language.
