Author’s Main Point or Purpose

When reading a passage, it is good to determine the author’s main point or purpose. The main point is what the author is trying to convey, and the purpose is the reason this point is being conveyed. The author will usually state their main point and proceed to explain and reinforce the point with some supporting information.
