Subtext (or undertone) refers to content of a literary text, as well as a play or a musical work, which is not announced explicitly by the characters (or author) but is implicit or becomes something understood by the observer of the work as the production unfolds. In this same fashion, the concept of subtext applies for film as well. Subtext may also refer to the thoughts and motives of the characters which are only covered in an aside, or may be used to imply controversial subjects (for example, by metaphor) without specifically alienating people from the work.
