  • Answer:

    2. A society's values and morals are reflected in the themes of its literature.

    Explanation:

    The theme is the message or life lesson that a story conveys about a topic. Very often, themes are closely related and influenced by a society's values and morals because authors often get inspired by the society they are living in, and aim to appeal to an audience that can relate to those morals or values.

    Some great examples of novels whose themes reflect a society's values and morals of a specific time in history are the fable Animal Farm by George Orwell which is an allegory of the events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then Stalinist era; and the themes of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee which reflect the values of prejudice and racism of a society living in an American Southern town during the 1930s.
