Exploring Mood and Atmosphere in WW1

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 hom’ because the author had used personification, which is giving an object a human like reference to the bottle, which still waits for its owner till this very day.  

I found this activity enjoying, because it helped me to learn new language features, which also helped me to identify them in the texts that my group read.

  1. Hello Chisa,
    Your DLO hooked me in immediately with the animations! It’s very creative how you animate aspects of your slide to keep your reader engaged. The Soldier Who Never Returned is one of my favourite WW1 poems, so I loved reading all about the language features used! What mood and atmosphere did you think this poem gives off? How does it make you feel?
