Theme Notes

  1. 1. ThemeThe Story’s Meaning and Roots
  2. 2. What is a Theme? • Theme: some idea or insight about human life and human nature that gives meaning to the story • A good story should mean something to the reader. • The story can reveal the writer’s whole view of life (how it works or fails to work).
  3. 3. What Do We Mean by Theme?• A theme is unseen and usually unstated • Theme is an idea; it may give insight into some aspect of life • Theme is not the same as the story’s plot (series of events) • Theme is not the same as the story’s subject
  4. 4. Discovering a Story’s Theme 1. A theme may be stated in no less than a single sentence (may need to be longer). • Ex. Hard work will always be rewarded. 2. A theme is not the same thing as a moral, which is a rule of conduct. • Ex. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. (This is a moral because it tells you what to do.)
  5. 5. Discovering a Story’s Theme 3. Ask how the protagonist has changed during the story & what the character has learned about life. 4. There is no one correct way to state the theme of a story. You may have several ideas about what the theme is.
