LI: To identify how authors use language features to create mood and atmosphere in a text
We have been exploring the ways writers use words to create mood and atmosphere in a text. Our group used a text we read in class called ‘The Soldier who Never Returned.’ You can see the ways the author used different langauge features to create mood and atmosphere in this text by looking at the examples we have highlighted and explained in our DLO.
My favourite example in the text we read was ‘as it waits for the soldier who never came home’ because the author wrote a personification, which gave the bottle a human-like reference.
I found this interesting because it allowed me to read and find the language features that were written in the text, and finding the mood and atmosphere in the text.
