Complete Literary Analysis:  Theme questions 1-2 
The theme of a literary work is the central idea it communicates about life. For example, a simple story might convey the theme "Honesty is the best policy." Another work might suggest, "Human suffering cannot be justified or explained." Frequently, writers' themes spring from the historical context of a selection,  the social and cultural background of a story. The author's diction and use of figurative language contribute to the interpretation of the theme. To express a theme, a writer may take on these approaches:

  • Directly state the theme of these works.
  • What are the patterns of the story elements that suggest a larger meaning?
  1. Using a chart, analyze the episodes in which Pahom is given the chance to  acquire property. How are these episodes related? State the theme of the story, explaining how each event helps convey it.
