It has two main types:

Backdrop Setting – Backdrop setting emerges when it is not important for a story, and it could happen in any setting.

 

Integral Setting – It is when the place and time influences theme, character and action of a story. In this type, setting controls the characters and by controlling setting, writers could control their characters.  If they confine a certain character to a particular setting, it will define the character.
