Works of fiction often have themes or morals for readers to think about. Learn the difference between a story's theme and a moral to the story. Explore why the moral of a story is often an implied lesson you can learn from a character's experience, and how theme is an overarching message communicated through setting, characters and action.
Theme appears throughout the novel and a moral is a statement usually at the end of a fable, but can also be found in a novel
