Every class in a school has a literary text as a part of its curriculum. This text generally contains poems, short stories, one-act plays or other narratives. Each of these pieces has a theme, i.e.the subject matter of the piece of writing, the central idea that pervades it. The guiding principle of a writer is to make every part of the writing move towards that central idea and to conform to it. He/she does this by trying to ensure that his/her work is presented as a cohesive whole and the subplots of the text take their proper place in that united whole.
