A motif is a symbolic idea that appears often in a story. It can be seen as a sound, image, action or other figures that have a symbolic importance and adds toward explaining or developing a theme while a theme is a main idea or message. A motif can be almost anything: ideas, an object, words, symbols, sounds, actions, concept, a color, a character epitome, the weather, or even a statement. Motifs are used to form a theme or a certain mood; permitting authors, and writers to create a more poetic and organized narrative having symbolic meaning. Motifs strengthen a story by adding ideas to the theme present all through the narrative. Motifs may come in the form of reoccurring imagery, structure, language or contrasts.
