The Hunger Games
Transcript of The Hunger Games
By: Tenzing Sakya, Andrea Beethe, Avery Burbank, Maddie Perszyk.
"The moment I slide into my chair I'm served an enormous amount of food. Eggs, ham, piles of fried potatoes."
A typical family in Panem has been broken apart due to the Capitol. There is no known extended family. There is no limit to the amount of children.
Individuality vs. Sameness
"...the country that rose from the ashes of a place that was once called North America...the disasters, the droughts, the storms, the fires, the encroaching seas that swallowed up so much of the land, the brutal war for what little sustenance remained. The result was Panem, a shining Capitol ringed by thirteen districts, which brought peace and prosperity to its citizens." (p. 18)
Katniss lost her father when she was eleven due to the coal mine explosions; so did Gale. She became the main provider for her family, and she remains close with her family even though her relationship has become strained with her mother.
"I try to rememer that when all I can see is the women who sat by, blank and unreachable, while her children turned to skin and bones" (p. 8)
There is one person in charge of Panem. President Snow. Katniss' world is not like the United States . The way Snow rules is like a dictatorship. There is no Parliament, nothing is a democracy. There also is not a Checking and Balance system. Their government is very different from ours. They have 'Peacekeepers' who our similar to our law enforcement but their punishments are much more brutal. Defying the Capitol can result in public humiliation, torture, and even death.
The day which one male and female child's name is drawn. Celebration after- mainly for families who had no drawn names.
The Hunger Games
(p.18) a televised fight to the death between twenty four tributes (one male, one female citizen from the ages of 12-18, randomly selected)
Three finger salute
(p.24) Touching three middle fingers of the left hand to their lips and holds it out/up. It's a way of saying thanks, showing admiration, saying goodbye to someone you love.
Panem is located in a place that was once known as the United States. District 12 is not a suitable place for growing crops. It is however suitable for mining. The Capitol is located where the Rocky Mountains are. District 12 is where the Appalachian Mountains are. (Back of book, p. 18)
"Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!,"
In District 12 the normal look for the people in the Seam is dark hair with olive skin.
They can eat and make their own food from what they can buy and find.
They can marry who they want.
"She most have really loved him to leave her home for the Seam." (p.8)
They can't talk bad about the Capitol or they will be publicly humiliated by Peacekeepers.
"It's real bakery bread, not the flat, dense loaves we make from our grain rations." (p. 7)
The Capitol dresses with crazy fashions like how Lady Gaga dresses.
"Straight black hair olive skin, we even have the same gray eyes." (p. 8)
"Effie Trinket, District 12's escort, fresh from the Capitol with her scary white grin, pinkish hair, and spring green suit." (p. 17)
Sequels to The Hunger Games
Food is very scarce in many of the Districts (3-12). However the Capitol has a great abundance. In the Capitol food is just another thing, but in many of the districts it is a struggle to provide and a matter of life or death. (p. 19 and p. 6)
is a symbol of rebellion. It was used against the rebels during the war, however they figured out the Capitol's tactic and used it against them by feeding the birds false information.
is symbolism of the Capitol's total power. It is used as a reminder of the Dark Days.
¨...The Treaty of Treason gave us the new laws to guarantee peace and, as our yearly reminder that the Dark Days must never be repeated, it gave us the Hunger Games.¨ (p.18)
is as well a symbol of the Capitol's total power as it was destroyed during the Dark Days.
¨Then came the Dark Days, the uprising of the districts against the Capitol. Twelve were defeated, the thirteenth obliterated.¨ (p.18)
Terms and Words
a deal that is offered to all children between 12 to 18. Each time you put your name in the reaping more than the required amount you receive a years supply of grains for one person.
the more run down part of District 12.
¨Gale, who is eighteen and has been either helping or single-handedly feeding a family of five for seven years, will have his name in forty-two times.¨ (p.13)
¨He has two older brothers, I know, I've seen them in the bakery, but one is probably too old now to volunteer and the other won't. This is standard. Family devotion only goes so far for most people on reaping day.¨ (p.26)
The Hunger Games
Katniss and Gale have been hunting since they were little to keep their families alive even though they are not supposed to. Even the Peacekeepers that they sell food to don't care that they are hunting illegally because they buy it off the black market as well as the rest of the Seam. (p.4-14)
"Listen up. You're in trouble. Word is the Capitol's furious about you showing them up in the arena. The one thing they can't stand is being laughed at and they're the joke of Panem." -Haymitch (p.356-357)
the name of the country where the Hunger Games take place. It includes 12 districts and a Capitol.
Food has a big role in our book, part of the difficulties in the Hunger Games is not starving to death
"Starvation's not an uncommon fate in District 12. Who hasn't seen the victims? Older people who can't work. Children from a family with too many to feed. Those injured in the mines. Straggling through the streets. And one day, you come upon them sitting motionless against a wall or lying in the Meadow, you hear the wails from a house, and the Peacekeepers are called in to retrieve the body. Starvation is never the cause of death officially. It's always the flu, or exposure, or pneumonia. But that fools no one." (p. 28)
They are not allowed to leave their District or go outside the electrified fence that leads into the woods.
an avox is someone who committed a crime against the Capitol and was punished with not speaking by having their tongue cut out.
All citizens are aware of Panem's history and are taught in school.
They can wear what they want.
Stealing is punishable by death.
