Identifying theme

Some final words about theme:

Many stories have multiple themes.

 Not every story has a theme: horror, detective, and adventure-thriller stories may not have themes.

 A theme can oversimplify. Discerning its themes enlarges our understanding of a work but doesn't capture the totality of its richness and complexity.
