Of enchanting, well-worn pages

Reply to IS THIS A THEME!!!??? HELP!!!

I don't believe that this is a theme, because it s not a main idea, rather it looks like an entire paragraph out of a poem or story. Therefore, a theme for this saying would be old memories, or remembering the old times.

no. that is a passage.

a theme is the message a book, play, movie etc. tells or a lesson it demonstrates.

The Call of the Wild

What is the theme in The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Multiple themes

One could argue that nothing has a definite theme; any work of literature contains any number of philosophical lessons one can learn.

A list could include: friendship, mutual benefits, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, strength through suffering, adaptation to hostile environments, perseverance, etc.

What is the theme of this novel? Help!

is the base that acts as a foundation for the entire literary piece. The theme links all aspects of the literary work with one another and is basically the main subject. The theme can be an enduring pattern or motif throughout the literary work, occurring in a complex, long winding manner or it can be short and succinct and provide a certain insight into the story.

Theme

How does one distinguish between a "theme" and subject matter?

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 05/14/2015 - 17:04
Theme vs. subject matter

To my understanding, subjects are simply the topics of the work (e.g. love, betrayal, communication, etc). Theme is the message the author is conveying about said subjects (e.g. A lack of communication sours love and leads to betrayal).

Theme vs. subject

Excellent explanation. I use this understanding to explain the difference between theme and subject to my students.

I love P&P and of course know the theme, but I have to write a term paper on how literary techniques around point-of-view, character, and setting suggest theme, and for some reason I just can't understand what they're asking for. If someone could help that would be wonderful!

whats the theme of to kill a mockingbird?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 15:45
Try Sparknotes

try sparknotes.
The most important theme of To Kill a Mockingbird is the book’s exploration of the moral nature of human beings—that is, whether people are essentially good or essentially evil. The novel approaches this question by dramatizing Scout and Jem’s transition from a perspective of childhood innocence, in which they assume that people are good because they have never seen evil, to a more adult perspective, in which they have confronted evil and must incorporate it into their understanding of the world. As a result of this portrayal of the transition from innocence to experience, one of the book’s important subthemes involves the threat that hatred, prejudice, and ignorance pose to the innocent: people such as Tom Robinson and Boo Radley are not prepared for the evil that they encounter, and, as a result, they are destroyed. Even Jem is victimized to an extent by his discovery of the evil of racism during and after the trial. Whereas Scout is able to maintain her basic faith in human nature despite Tom’s conviction, Jem’s faith in justice and in humanity is badly damaged, and he retreats into a state of disillusionment.
