Evaluating Literature—theme

The story elements (plot, setting, character, et al) come together to support the story's central ideas.

Carpe diem theme—spontaneity and a degree of risk are essential for a vibrant life. To act only when one knows the exact outcome leads to a crabbed existence.
Coming-of-age theme—crossing from youth into adulthood means leaving behind childish ideas and entering a world of new understanding.
