• Vexed with having such a bad haul, when he had mended his nets, which the carcass of the butt had broken in several places, he threw them a second time. In drawing them in he again felt a great weight, so that he thought they were full of fish. But he only found a large basket full of rubbish. He was much annoyed."O Fortune," he cried, "do not trifle thus with me, a poor fisherman, who can hardly support his family!"So saying, he threw away the rubbish, and after having washed his nets clean of the dirt, he threw them for the third time. But he only drew in stones, shells, and mud. He was almost in despair.–“The Story of the Fisherman,”Andrew LangeWhat tone is created by the words underlined in the passage?
