Any successful author understands that in order for their narratives to be read and liked by the general public, they must be able to connect to a reader’s emotions easily and powerfully. While the reader is reading the text, their mood might vary depending on what the author writes about, and how well they convey what they want their readers to feel. Writers often evoke many types of literary elements to achieve this, including imagery, diction, and their own tone. Take, for instance, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
