Home Forums Parent forum Introduction to Fiction The elements of fiction Re: The elements of fiction



From redading Charters elements of fiction, theme is a generalization of the meaning of a story. My question is can a story have more than one theme?
Also Charters states, your statement of the theme suggest your understanding of the authors vision of the meaning of life , does this mean we always relate fiction to human experience? and can my statement of the theme be considered right or wrong?
Symbolism and allegory are both aspects of the authors style. can you give an example of when a story becomes an allegory?
