    In this discussion, we will explore theme. A theme is a significant idea or lesson conveyed in a text. It is a message the author conveys through important details or events. Some themes are so universal that they apply to people across time and cultures.

    For example, a relevant theme from "Cronus" is: Parent-Child Relationships.

    Using that, here is a thematic statement: A mother will put her love for her children above every other relationship.

    Note that a thematic statement is a full sentence that conveys a complete idea. In this discussion, you will be writing thematic statements.
