Subject of article by yours truly (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

theme

'subject' is the definition.
(theme can mean a topic or subject)

'article by yours truly' is the wordplay.
'article' becomes 'the' (the definite article in English).
'by' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'yours truly' becomes 'me' (the person that set this crossword).
'the'+'me'='THEME'

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for theme that I've seen before include "idea of the work" , "Signature tune" , "Unifying motif" , "He met (anag) - subject" , "A subject or repeated melody" .)

I've seen this clue in The Daily Express.
