The Hunger Games and 1984
Transcript of The Hunger Games and 1984
and 1984 By: Chelsea Orits Themes Katniss and Peeta from the Hunger Games are in love, however, the Games only allow one victor so their love may never be.
“This is that we’re both fully aware of. Neither of us hobbled by sickness… This is the first kiss that makes me want another” (Collins 298).

“The smell of her hair, the taste of her mouth, the feeling of her skin seemed to have got inside him or into the air all around him. She had become a physical necessity, something he not only wanted but felt he had a right to” (Orwell 139). Love Totalitarianism Totalitarianism: control by the state or a governing branch of a highly centralized institution. Countries still under totalitarian rule: Belarus, Burma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam. “When I was younger I scared my mother to death, the things I would blurt out about district 12… Eventually I understood this would only lead us to more trouble. So I learned to hold my tongue and to turn my features into an indifferent mask so that no one could ever read my thoughts” (Collins 6). “People simply disappeared, always in then night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had was wiped out, and your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word” (Orwell 19). Rebellion “I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do that there is a part if every tribute they can’t own. That Rue was more than a piece of their game. And so am I” (Collins 236-237). “To die hating them, that was freedom” (Orwell 281). The Egyptian Revolution Thank you!
