On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up.

The Emperor 's New Clothes also “dramatizes the dangers of habitual blindness in the name of social discretion.” Basically it means that this story is meant to open the eyes of those who are “blind” and just follow the crowd as if they have no brain of their own. However, as a result of a child’s ignorance, children do not seem to understand what society “requires” because they tend to do the noblest and bravest things.

However, the child was the only one to admit that the king was not wearing clothes because everyone else was afraid that people would think that they are impure; but with that one confession everyone was finally able to say the truth. Oh the “self-delusion of adults and the literal-mindedness of children” (‘Spotlight on Literary Elements’).
