The Hunger Games, The Wizard of Earthsea, and The Hero and the Crown almost, if not perfectly, fit into Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey. With the exception of The Hero and the Crown, Katniss and Ged both start “in the ordinary world.” We get to know Katniss and District 12, and Ged as a child in this hometown. The Hero and the Crown starts mid-story, but soon
Katniss Everdeen is the main character of the book, The Hunger Games, and a tribute from District 12. Grey eyed and olive skinned, she takes care of her mother and younger sister, Prim. Their mother was living through depression after her husband died in a mine explosion, giving responsibility up to Katniss. The sixteen year old would often find herself hunting (for food) with her close friend, Gale, although it was not allowed to the people of Panem. A major practice that Katniss inherits, and is known for, is the ability to hunt and her skills with the bow and arrow. She soon realizes that fear is common for her during the Hunger Games and the reaping as she remembers her family and survival. Through all that, Katniss can still be reliable
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. However, overall she proves to the city and district that she is a tragic hero through her self-sacrifice that led to victory.
Hero’s have quest most of these quest start out all with the same idea but sometimes they don’t turn out the way hero’s want and most of the time they do. Katniss had a quest to go into the hunger games and win after she volunteered to take her sister 's spot. When they arrived to the capital her quest began, she went to trainings to train and to watch the other tributes to see what their strongest at doing. When training was over and it was time to go into the arena to battle for your life katniss was nervous but she went in with a brave face. As more and more people
In the first installment of the Hunger Games series we are greeted to the character Katniss Everdeen. Katniss and her family reside in the lowly District 12, the coal mining district, where the felling of death and despair is a guarantee. After the death of her father in a coal mining accident Katniss must do whatever she must in order to ensure the survival of her family and herself. Directed by Gary Ross the film was both a critical and financial success.
Have you ever been hunted? Random question right but for Katniss Everdeen and Rainsford the answer would be yes. Yann Martel states “You must take the way life comes at you and make the best of it.” I agree with this because life can change so quickly and you must accept it. In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins Katniss is faced with the challenge of competing in the hunger games. In “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford is faced with being hunted by another Human. Both of these characters use Setting and conflict to overcome their own challenges.
Do you believe that being responsible is essential to daily life? In The Hunger Games do you think that the tributes that have won had to survive by responsibility? In the novel, the main characters, “Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark” are entered into the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a reality TV show that forces teenagers ages twelve to eighteen to fight for their lives against one another. In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins the overarching theme is being responsible is vital to survive in daily life, Katniss demonstrates this by caring for her family, being responsible for Peeta and his actions and being responsible for herself and her own actions.
Theme #1- No matter what tyrannical environment you live in, your identity can never be changed
The theme of the dystopian novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is survival. Katniss Everdeen is the epitome of this theme; her disposition luckily possesses all of the attributes needed to survive. Katniss displays the theme of survival because she is resourceful, has integrity, and has perseverance.
The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins tells a story about a girl whose bravery changed the way people thought about their world. The three grueling challenges that the main character, Katniss Everdeen, had faced show what I believe to be challenging. The first challenge that I have chosen was when Katniss had to provide for her family by hunting in the woods for food. My second challenge that I have chosen was when Katniss and Rue began to form a bond during the games. My third challenge that I have chosen was when Katniss offered the Nightlock berries to Peeta. I have chosen each of these challenges because they all show the reader how the characters struggle to make decisions and how they have overcome the obstacles during these times.
An unknown person once said, “When we read books, we don’t fall in love with the character’s appearances. We fall in love with their thoughts, their words, and their actions. We fall in love with their souls.” In the dystopian novel, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, this is exactly what happens, Katniss moves the readers by having such characteristic and skills to be able to survive. Katniss’s characteristics, of being caring, having a determined personality, and her intelligence in survival skills, all help support the theme of Katniss being able to survive.
The film follows a classic narrative arrangement delineated by Todorov. The movie begins with an equilibrium, the people of District 12 live in a miserable penury, which leads to Katniss looking after her family (adopting a patriarchal role, as it was mentioned before). Later on, there is a disequilibrium, Katniss volunteers to take part in the Hunger Games in order to save her sister’s life. And then a new equilibrium arises at the end, as Katniss wins the Hunger Games, consequently finishing an archetypal Hollywood three part story arc. Another narrative structure theory that can applied to the film is Propp’s study on narrative, in this case, the functions of characters. There are six distinct characters present in the storyline: a villain/s (President Snow and Cato); the hero (Katniss); the donor/s (Cinna and Haymitch); the helper/s (Rue, Peeta, Haymitch and Cinna); the princess (Peeta is the “princess” in the film, as he definitely seems to be rescued by Katniss); and the dispatcher (Effie, she randomly selects the participants for the

The hunger games is an adventure and science fiction novel by the American writer Suzanne Collins. This is the trilogy movie, so the first one is the hunger games, next the hunger games catching fire and the last is the hunger games mocking jay. This novel was adapted to the movie in 2012 and directed by Gary Ross and co-written by Suzanne Collins herself. Point of view from this movie was from Katniss Everdeen who lives in Panem, North America. On the other hand, there is Capitol who has political control in the nation of panem. The story starts when each district must offer a male and female between the ages of 12-18 at a public reaping as a penance for their uprising. The tributes which are male and female shall be delivered to the Capitol and then transferred to a public arena where they will fight with other district until a lone victor remains. This tradition called the hunger games. The story centers was coming from poor district 12 where Katniss and Peeta as their tributes. 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.
Suzanne Collins author of “The Hunger Games” designed Katniss Everdeen as the idealistic image of women in society. Her strength, skills, and self-control make her a figure of a woman perfect to match how our society wants women to be like and Suzanne wants that to stand out and make us think about it. Suzanne Collins wants to express how she thinks female should be like in everyday life and express that Katniss is much more than just a character, she is a message that is being sent to all the readers. Katniss breaks all the already established stereotypes by being able to survive, improvise and control herself in bad moments when even the toughest person would break apart.
