Everyone in District 12 learn many lessons, when Katniss goes into the games. My claim for this story is that symbols help the readers understand the theme. Symbols such as mockingjay pin, dandelions, and Peeta’s bread. The theme for this story is that the choices you make define you.

Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games, imagines a world where people are divided by district just like the real world does with the high, middle, low classes.

In the Hunger Games series, a dystopian future is set up. The government of Panem, The Capitol, holds the wealth of Panem giving it the power to control all districts. In order to enforce this theory, they created the Hunger Games. They suppressed the rights of the citizen’s of Panem and selected their children in order to fight each other do death for survival.

The Book and Movie, The Hunger Games, is an allusion to The story of Theseus and the Minotaur from Greek Mythology. The story goes that Minos, the king of Crete, once sent his only son on a visit to Athens, and he was sent by the Athenian king to fight a bull. When the boy died from the fight, the angry Minos captured Athens and declared that he would destroy it unless they completed his bizarre demand: once every nine years, the Athenians had to send a tribute of seven maidens and seven youths, who would then be forced to confront the Minotaur, who would devour them.

Shortly after their arrival, the boys try to maintain all their humanity and conscience. Nonetheless, as the story unfolds, they start to concede to the inner darkness and forsake all sign of civility in exchange of ruthlessness. This is due to the children’s fear of a fabricated dread that they call the “beast”. While the majority of the survivors craved
