1.3 The Unconscious Before the games, Madge gave the pin to Katniss. This is for her to remember her friends, family, and her district. But Katniss is unconscious that the mockingjay pin will save her life. This pin was associated with Rue. The pin also symbolizes the revolution without Katniss even knowing about it.
Symbolism is a notable feature in Catching Fire (2009) . Through symbolism , Suzanne Collins manages to paint Katniss as the ultimate embodiment of rebellion through transferring her into a mockingjay . " A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist"(92), as it is a result of the Capitol's usage of the japperjays which were sent to spy on the rebels. However, the japperjays failed in their mission so the Capitol left them to die ,but they managed to survive through mating to female mockingbirds . This proves that the existence of the mockingjays is an act of rebellion in itself , an act of defiance excuted by the Capitol's own invention , long before Katniss has been born.
Peeta is speaking to Katniss and having a very deep conversation. On page 142, peeta states “I 'm not going to be another piece in the capitals game.” This represents the theme “Always know your true self in the worst of situations” because peeta is explaining that even though he might die during the games, he still wants to die as the same Peeta he knows and loves. He doesn 't want to die as a savage wild animal. Another example of the theme “Always know your true self in the worst of situations.” is towards the middle of the games, when rue passes away. On page 237, When Rue is speared and Katniss surrounds her in flowers, she does the three finger salute to the cameras.

One of the largest reasons for Katniss’s survival would be her caring personality and how it is able to affect those around her. At this point in the book, District 12 had just started their reaping, which is a lottery of sorts and Prim has just been picked. The text states on page 21-22, “There must have been a mistake. This can’t be happening. Prim was one slip in a thousand…’I volunteer!’ I gasp.
Throughout the novel, this theme of appearances is portrayed in all areas, even when it is not expected. Evading the Capitol’s persecution with fake love and dazzling outfits, Katniss and Peeta live on, back in District 12, until they have to compete in the 75th Hunger Games. For the future of these characters, I hope they continue to defy the Capitol and cause rebellion in the Districts, creating an appearance of hope and defiance.

After their father’s death, Katniss begins supporting her family. She keeps Prim’s entries into the drawing for the Reaping to only one. When Katniss's little sister is called to be placed in a hostile environment, Katniss volunteers in her sister’s place. Katniss

Katniss and Peeta develop a complicated relationship throughout the novel, and conflicts of interests, plus the entire nature of their relationship can be can be easily scrutinized, once closely examined. From the beginning of the novel, Peeta goes out of his way to care for Katniss, and at one point suffers phsical abuse from his mother in order to feed her a loaf of bread. “The boy took one look back to the bakery as if checking that the coast 32 was clear, then, his attention back on the pig, he threw a loaf of bread in my direction. The second quickly followed, and he sloshed back to the bakery, closing the kitchen door tightly behind him.” (Collins 32). Katniss and Peeta also seem to have a codependent relationship, and both benefit from each other, represented best when Katniss hunts for food while Peeta collects berries; showing how both use their strengths to help each other survive.

Actually, Katniss is not chosen as tribute but she sacrifices herself as a tribute to replace her sister Prim. The plot also explains love triangle between Katniss, Peeta and Gale.
