To identify an author's tone, mood, and point of view in a story, pay close attention to the language, word choices, and overall atmosphere. The author's tone, or their attitude towards the subject, can be discerned through the way they express emotions, opinions, or intentions in the narrative. The mood is the emotional atmosphere evoked in the reader, shaped by the author's descriptive language and the events in the story. The author's point of view refers to the narrative perspective, whether it's first-person (the author as a character), third-person limited (one character's viewpoint), or third-person omniscient (multiple characters' viewpoints). Analyzing these elements enhances the understanding of the author's intentions and the story's impact.
