Subject Matter and Theme

Subject matter is not what the work contains, but what the work refers to. Subject matter is the main idea of the story which consists of one or two phrases. Theme is the central idea or meaning of a story.

From this explanation it can be concluded that theme and subject matter are different. Theme is an idea which the author presents and is usually written in a full sentence. However, subject matter is a specific topic that is written in a phrase.
