Is there a purely literary equivalent to this trope, where instead the writing style conflicts with intended mood (ex. Dr. Seuss-esque description in an otherwise straight attempt of portraying Nazi ideology, or extravagant Purple Prose used to convey eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch).

I don't really get this trope. When was it ever implied there would be a connection between art style and mood? Who decides what's dissonant and assonant?

Cultural convention seems to decide it. Like with every trope.
