Question Description

I’m working on a english discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Setting is the time and place of the action of the story, but it also creates mood and atmosphere, as well as revealing historical context, character motivation, and more. All action in fiction, as in the real world, takes place in a context or setting, and usually that is significant to understanding the story. 

For instance, the Harry Potter films are rife with beautiful scenery, both real and computer-generated. Not all settings have to be natural landscapes.  Some of the best settings ever seen in movies can be seen in the simplest of scenes like in Diagon Alley, the Weasleys’ house, or, of course, the looming Hogwarts castle itself. Much of the wonder and magic in these movie comes from the setting alone.
