Relating Work to Setting
In life, variety helps to keep things from getting too boring or dull. When you are exposed to another person's culture (a way of life slightly different from your own or what you are used to), it helps you learn and discover things you might not have tried to learn on your own.
Dialogue is an important part of most short stories and novels. It is always better to show how events happen than to explain or to describe them. Conversations between characters, or dialogue, is one way to do this.
The theme or moral is the most important idea the reader gets from a story. It may give a short lesson about life. It tells how the author feels about life or human nature. The author may repeat the idea more than one time. Sometimes the author doesn't tell you what the theme is. You may have to figure it out from the text.
