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. .
To Kill a Mockingbird is a book mainly about the coexistence of good and evil. The book stresses and emphasizes on the exploration of moral nature in humans. There are many themes in this novel including courage, innocence, racism, femininity, etc. However the most prevalent theme in the book is innocence. Not just innocence in itself but the danger and harm evil poses to the innocent.
Katniss’ struggle to maintain her authentic self represents a strategy to navigate the problems of the world as she tries to feed her family, fight against her competitors to survive the Games as well as fighting against oppression in society. She assumes a public persona amidst maintaining an identity to win the audience’s favor to get help at key points. However, she is not charismatic and thus struggles with knowing the right things to do and say in addition to making decisions on how to go about such issues. Collins seems to assert that crafting a public persona is not dangerous as long as it plays out well as it happened to Katniss by, for instance, getting more sponsors (Collins, 10.24). However, the person assuming a public persona should learn the distinctions between what is real and is fiction.

This metaphor compares Scout’s school progress to a treadmill. The author shows how Scout hates school to make us believe that she has shown no progress in the Maycomb County school system. The comparison to a treadmill helps show that Scout’s learning experience is going nowhere. This is because a treadmill goes nowhere, as well. The quote means that Scout is slowly going through the school years.

Because I had recently viewed the Mockingjay part two of the Hunger Games series, I saw an immediate connection in this chapter. Hunger Games part 1 required two of the participants from each of the 12 districts to be part of the annual Hunger Games. Each participant was given time to practice and prepare for the event; however, only one participant was going to survive in the end. Although not as violent, the preparations in the land of Ghuroub is very comparable to the training in the Hunger Games. The difference is that the people are trained with singing, or by “extracting the powers hidden within themselves” (Mahfouz 56).
Allegorical symbolism is portrayed in many ways in The Chronicles Of Narnia. From Aslan the lion to Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, each character and element in the book resembles something in the bible. For example, Peter, the eldest of the four children resembles the Apostle Peter. Both individuals show great courage, and they also became leaders after their kings sacrificed themselves. The author, C.S. Lewis, combined his childhood love of fantasy and his Christian faith to relay the story of Jesus Christ to children.
