There are several themes in the book, each one has a significant meaning to the storyline. The first symbol that describes the theme of abuse of power is government control.

To explain this more into detail, the government controls all the districts and all the districts have to follow the rules or else there is a serious punishment.

Paragraph 1: Governmental Control in the “Hunger Games” was something that was really highlighted as people in the capitol had control over those living in the district. The district had strict laws inflicted upon them, making life difficult.
Katniss is very poor which makes training for the Hunger Games very difficult for her. Unlike her opponents in other districts who train their whole lives for the Games.

The Hunger games as you all are in common with was created by a bias capitol.
The famous Roman orator and senator Publius Tacitus once wrote that “the more the laws, the more corrupt the government.” A corrupt system always tries to put restrictions and create laws in order to ensure that their power as an authority is not in danger of being disregarded. In Suzanne Collins’ renowned novel The Hunger Games, the Capitol is a corrupt system in Panem because it abuses its powers to control the citizens. It does so by forcing restrictions on the freedom of the people, favoring the rich and imposing harsh punishments.

The Hunger Games is trying to warn people around the world about segregation reoccurring, entertainment of suffering, and the effects of poverty on young people.

Feminist literary criticism’s primary argument is that female characters have always been presented from a male’s viewpoint. According to Connell, in most literary works, female characters often play minor roles which emphasize their domestic roles, subservience and physical beauty while males are always the protagonists who are strong, heroic and dominant (qtd. in Woloshyn et al.150). This means that the women are perceived as weak and are supposed to be under the control of men. Gill and Sellers say that feminist literary criticism’s approach involves identifying with female characters in order to challenge any male centred outlook.
In conclusion, poverty and freedom are the most common form of social/political issues that can be seen in real world that are very well documented in the novel Scored and in the film The Hunger Games. There is an interconnection between freedom and poverty. If there is freedom, it means that the government is taking action to keep people happy and because of that, there is less poverty. This is usually not the case. Most governments try to get the best out of its citizens and leave little for them and this causes poverty.
