Suzanne Colin’s, intense Hunger Games story teaches and shows many life lessons. In this story, Katniss volunteers for her sister, Prim’s spot in the Hunger games. A game where the last person alive wins. One woman and one male from 12 districts, get picked, along with 22 other tributes. Katniss has history with the male tribute, Peeta.
Mythologist, college professor, and author Joseph Campbell came up with the idea of the Hero’s Journey, which had a big impact of literature, and still does today. The Hero’s Journey consists of four main parts, with more ideas under each part. These four parts are Departure, Testing, Fulfillment, and Return. Each part is a key aspect of the Hero’s Journey. In The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins, Katniss Everdeen goes through this journey. Katniss goes through each and every part, becoming a hero without even knowing it.
She has become the victor of the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games. If Katniss would not have persisted throughout the entirety of the Games, then she would have been killed off. This helps support the book's theme of survival because without perseverance, Katniss would not have made it that far in the Games. She would have not at all been able to go home to Prim. One needs perseverance to survive, which is why the character trait conveys the theme of the story.
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. Katniss as a central role in this movie looks strong and convincing with a bow and arrow. The analysis of the hunger games will be explain with Marxist theory because this movie related with marxism issue which is social class between capitol and twelve district.
Mockingjay The book that I read was Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Mockingjay is a book about a girl named Katniss Everdeen, also known as the girl on fire, who is still alive after her home was demolished. Her close friend, Gale has also survived everything the Capitol has thrown at their district, district 12.
The announcement said that there may be two winners of the Hunger Games if they are from the same district. This urged Katniss to find Peeta, as she's walking she sees a blood trail. As she follows the blood trail she hears a weak voice saying “Don’t step on me”. It was Peeta, Katniss nursed him back to health. She washed his wounds and wrapped his leg up.
She starts off as a well-respected female in her district despite the fact she’s poor. Her hamartia of caring too much about other’s survival leads her to her downfall where she volunteers to risk her life in the Panem Games for her sister during the Reaping. Again relating back to Aristotle, her downfall has a great impact on her family because they will struggle in privation alone without Katniss to help. Even throughout the game, Katniss relentlessly sacrifices her own safety to ensure that Peeta was safe. When Peeta gets a serious wound from a sword stab, Katniss’s tragic flaw forces her to go out of hiding and obtain medicine, leading her to her downfall of almost getting killed by another
Katniss is a hunter and Peeta worked in a bakery. They both knew that survival was not only important for themselves, but also their families, they had no time to be normal
After both Katniss and Peeta win the Hunger Games, they return home and create a rebel party against the Capitol. Katniss and Peeta are drafted again into the 75th Hunger Games, and Katniss destroys the Hunger Games. In doing this, Peeta is captured by the Capitol and kept as a prisoner of war. In order to save Peeta and the Districts, Katniss unites the people against the Capitol. They form an army that passes through the security of the Capitol and saved Peeta.
“The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins is a suspenseful and frightening story about a 16 year old girl, Katniss everdeen who is born into a small village called District 12. The capitol, which controls the districts hosts an annual Hunger Games each and every year. Two tributes, a boy and a girl from each district are chosen between the ages of 12-18 to compete against 22 other tributes, but only one can win. Katniss is not chosen, but her younger sister Prim is chosen at only 12 years old. Katniss volunteers in Prim 's place and is now in the hunger games. The boy tribute from district 12 is a son of a baker, Peeta Mellark. They are taken to the capitol and are preparing to spend three horrifying weeks inside of the arena where life or death is their
Katniss Everdeen: Katniss Everdeen is the protagonist of the novel, and the story is told from her perspective. She is a 16-year-old girl who lives in District 12, the poorest region of a nation called Panem. She has straight black hair, olive skin and gray eyes. This is a common appearance for residents who live in the Seam.
Now in this story it is not the fancy wigs or the sparkles of the Capital that make it that way. It is the Hunger Games. Once a year all twelve districts of Panem have a reaping, where one boy and one girl from each district are chosen (or forced) to play in the hunger games. This year Katniss and Peeta from district 12 were chosen along with many others. During the games the Tributes fight to the death and there can only be one survivor, but while Peeta and Katniss establish a love connection in the arena they refuse to kill each other and are about to swallow some poisonous berries and end it together when the game makers intervene to keep the people in the district's happy and let them both live.
Katniss and Peeta’s appearance, altered by the capital, is important for their survival before, during, and after the games. In the Capitol of Panem, appearances are everything, especially the pre-games rituals, such as the chariot ride into the Capitol or the Gamemaker's scores on the tributes. Katniss and Peeta, both coming from a poor district, are not liked as the other districts are, such as Districts 1, 2, or 3, but this does not restrain their chatriot ride into the Capitol. “The crowd’s initial alarm at our appearance quickly changes to cheers and shouts of ‘District Twelve!’
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. Above all, Katniss and Peeta can relate to each other, as they have both been actively thrown into a giant arena and are both fighitng for their lives.
