Mood is another word for the atmosphere of a play, poem, short story, or novel. Authors use character descriptions, setting and dialogue to create mood. Although sometimes the atmosphere created at the beginning of a story remains until the end, it often changes at some point in the text. A good example is the play, An Inspector Calls, in which the mood changes drastically during the first act.
