Symbolism is a notable feature in Catching Fire. 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.

When carpenter is about to flog Azaro with her permission because he has driven away Madame Koto’s Customers, that time she replies him to flog his own
This shows how rudely Mary reacts when she is accused of being a carrier for typhoid disease. She acts this way because she knows she is going to get caught for her crimes. The only way Mary covers up her sins is by threatening people. Similarly, Mary had an admonishing reaction when scientist George Soper wanted to help her cure her typhoid disease. Soper explained how is fortunate enough to escape, “When he recounted the incident, Soper didn’t say whether Mary chased him with the carving fork-and if she did, how far he ran- but he did say, “I felt rather lucky to escape” (Bartoletti 44).
Is he really cruel and wrong? Creon is the new king of Thebes and edicts that no one can bury the corpse of Polyneices and if someone buried the corpse, he will be punished to death. Antigone informs Ismene about the edict. Creon has given funeral honours to one, And not to the other; nothing but shame and ignominy.
Later when he has a sexual relationship with one of his students the school’s board decides for him “…the severest penality. The professor Lurie be dismissed with immediate effect and forfeit all benefits and privileges” . This situation could easily parallel an African who was once a powerful member of his tribe before colonization and then lost all his power and status due to the arrival of Europeans who restructured their cultural hierarchy. Another example would be when David’s daughter is raped by native Africans after they gain the majority of the nation’s power. In early colonial times such a situation could easily be reversed and an African women would have been raped instead and then her father would seek justice.
A perfect example is the Dred Scott v Sandford case. Dred Scott had moved with his owner to free states. When his owner died he tried to purchase his freedom; however, the widow rejected. Dred Scott filed suit and the case was heard by the supreme court.

Harriet’s husband also cheated on her which left her heart broken but it only made her stronger (“Obstacles”). Though she had obstacles to overcome Harriet was still one of the best conductors of the Underground
POLICE ON MY BACK by Clash The catchy song depicts a person running from the law. Although it was not clear what he had done to warrant the police to chase them it is safe to conclude that the person had broken a law. The play also touched upon the subject of law and the consequences that follows if you break them. The first one was the betrayal of Polyneices against his people. He was then sentenced to be stripped of the burial rite as decreed by the new king Creon.
