The tone of the story of Arachne is serious because it aims to earnestly remind the readers and everybody the value of humility and gratefulness for all the blessings received. On the other hand, the prevailing mood of the story of Arachne is unhappy because Arachne ended as a spider destined to spin for the rest of her life because of being boastful of her talents and skills. She should have been on the Earth acting like a normal person if she had only recognized the value of humility.
