Flashcard 6 - High School English II: Reading Flashcard Set for the STAAR test


The correct answer is:

what the text is about and what the author has to say about that subject


The theme is not to be confused with argument. Theme is the subject and the author’s position with regard to that subject, but it does not mean that the author is trying to convince the reader to take the same position. Rather, theme is presented as “here’s what the text is about and here’s what the author seems to think of the topic.”
