So what is Thematic Significance?

Thematic Significance is the underlying meaning of a novel. It's the essence of what your character's journey means to the reader. Well developed themes resonate. Theme is how the author communicates his/her perception of the character's deeper understanding of human existence that comes about from their journey.
Remember...there can also be sub-themes!
I thought I'd re-post the links from the Theme Topic for additional help on developing theme:
