An author's style affects how a reader responds to a piece of writing. Long sentences are often characteristic of a fluid, poetic style that connects many ideas. Simple word choice can reflect the voice of the narrator or can be a way to communicate ideas in an easy-to-understand manner. Use of imagery and figurative language is a common technique of poetic writers. Style can also be a clue to the author's purpose.
