For questions about morals in the literary sense - lessons that can be derived from a story. Not to be used for general questions about right and wrong in a story.

Use this tag for questions about morals - in the literary sense of "lessons which can be derived from a story", not in the perhaps more common sense of "rules on what's right and wrong". For example:

  • What is the moral of this specific story?
  • Did any/all of this specific author's works have a moral?

Stories that have clear morals are often called fables.
