This essay psychoanalyzes one of the main characters in the novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The main character in this novel is Katniss Everdeen. Some defense mechanisms are illustrated in her behavior and actions. This novel is about a country that consists of 12 districts ruled by the Capitol, a totalitarian city. Every year, each district sends two participants, a boy and a girl, to Capitol to participate in the Hunger Games.
The last thing that make "The Hunger Games" a supreme example of a dystopian society is the fact that freedom is restricted by forcing the families from the districts to send their kids to death, also known as the hunger games. All of these factors are presented in the novel throughout the experience of Katniss Everdeen in the games. Katniss is a 16 years old teenager from District-12, one of the districts where families suffer to put a something in their empty stomach. Her bad luck leads her to become a tribute in the hunger games, which is an undebatable evidence that the "Hunger Games" novel is a dystopia. To begin with, the hunger games are created by the government of Panem.
For instance, Panem, the country where The Hunger Games takes place, symbolizes the dystopian United States where there is no humanity. The word Panem derives from the Latin phrase panem et circenses which means bread and circuses. It is used to describe entertainment that symbolized in the Hunger Games as it is showed when Effie Trinket gives her signature in the reaping saying “Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!” (19). Furthermore, the government rules Panem by harsh laws as it enforces the people to participate in the annual sadistic event, The Hunger Games.
Over a century ago, after a war, the founders of Chicago created a system that they thought would generate peace for everyone. They divided their society into several factions. Everyone had to be tested to determine which faction best suits them and that is where they will belong. Divergent has the same similarities to the Hunger Games in this scenario because both Divergent and the Hunger Games takes place in a futuristic time period. Additionally, both of their societies are split into different communities, Divergent is divided into five factions; Abnegation, Dauntless, Erudite, Amity, and Candor and the Hunger Games is divided into twelve districts.
On analyzing the novel "The Hunger Games", we would be able to understand that it is clever satire of Western manias like fashion, reality television shows and the cult of celebrity. The main source of power that has been dealt in the novel is the authorities of the totalitarian government of the Capitol, though Capitol holds almost all the wealth of Panem and was able to control the lives of the people in all the districts. The Hunger Games had been designed in such a way as an ultimate display of power that has been held by the government and also to warn the plebs against rebellion. Every citizen of Panem is destined to be the pawn in an elaborate game of life and death. Though only one contestant could win the Games, all the tributes were forced to slay other corrival from other districts and also one from their own district.
This essay will critically examine on how the female figure is represented throughout a very “selective” media outlet (the film industry), and how society is depicted in the film medium. The chosen media text for analysis is The Hunger Games, a theatrical adaptation of the novel written by Suzanne Collins and directed by Gary Ross. The film is centred on Katniss Everdeen - a teenage girl who volunteers on behalf of her sister, to fight in the annual Hunger Games- and the male District 12 tribute, Peeta Mellark, with whom she shares quite an intense past. Both characters embark on a journey that will test their physical and emotional boundaries, while being hunted by the other 22 competitors who all fight for the same objective: survival. Though The
