A Weeee Little Mini... Tips on How to Determine “Theme”
Determining the theme of a work of literature can often be tricky, but here are a few tried and true tips for the novice theme-writer:
1. Theme is the lesson or moral of a work of literature. It is often what the protagonist learns.
2. Since “theme” is a lesson-learned, it can NEVER, EVER be just one word. (Nevereverevereverever....)
3. It MUST be ONE COMPLETE SENTENCE.
4. A theme is typically “universal,” which means it can apply to a variety of texts.
Examples of common themes: 1.Love conquers all.
Examples of common themes: 2. If a person works hard, he/she can achieve his/her dreams.
Examples of common themes: 3. Never give up!
