A theme is the central message about life that the author wishes to convey to the reader. Most narratives or stories students read have a theme. The theme is sometimes hard to find. There are two kinds of themes, stated themes and implied themes. Stated themes are directly stated by a character or narrator in the story. Implied themes are not said directly, but the reader has to come up with what the think the message of the story is. Themes touch on the moral aspect of the story and how we as readers can learn lessons about life through literature.
