Transcript of The Hunger Games

By Thomas Peek and Fahhaam Aatir
By Susan Collins
Published in September 2008
The Hunger Games
The most emotional or suspenseful moment.
Rue dies after their successful plan to blow up the career tributes supplies and Katniss covers her in flowers.
It gave Katniss motivation to win the games for Rue.
Series of related events that make up a story.
In a post apocalyptic future, the nation of Panem is divided into 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two kids, one boy and one girl, from each district are selected to be in The Hunger Games. This is punishment for a past rebellion. The 24 tributes are required to kill each other while the citizens of Panem are forced to watch. Primrose, Katniss's sister, is picked to be district 12's female tribute. Katniss volunteered to take Prim's spot in the Huger Games. She and the male tribute from district 12, Peeta , have to go against tributes from other districts that are bigger, stronger and well trained.
This gives the story an interesting insight into what problems Katniss is forced to face.

It made the capital change the rule back and they both won.
The use of clues to suggest events that will happen later.
Katniss demonstrates her ability to hunt and forage in order to survive. Peeta is good at the camouflage station in training.
Katniss being able to hunt foreshadows how she has a chance to win the game, and Peeta being able to camouflage foreshadows how he was able to survive after being cut.
Comparison between two unlike things, using like or as.

Comparing two unlike things, without using like or as.
When Katniss says "what easy prey I am"
Katniss believes she was easy prey because she was losing her body functions like walking. She knew she needed to find water or die.
Point Of View
Definition: The time and place in which events of a work of literature take place.
Setting: In the Future, Panem.
Example: "I would blurt out about District 12, about the people who rule our country, Panem".
The setting explains how different the capital and the districts and how isolated the districts are from each other.
Part of the stories that tells who the characters are and the conflict.
A related, series of events in a story that build up to the climax.
The point when the conflict between the antagonist and protagonist unravels or is resolved.
The truth about life revealed in a work of literature.
A class or category of artistic endeavor having a particular form, content, and technique.
Science Fiction
This is a great contributor to the story line with futuristic technology. This makes it seem possible for them to have mutated animals and control over the arena.
The attitude that a writer takes toward the audience, a subject, or a character.
An expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meanings of its constituent elements.
When Katniss says "Heaviness infuses my whole body, as if there's liquid lead in my veins."
She is in a state of depression following Rue's death and she has to persevere through her sadness.
An extra scene or moment in a story that takes the reader back to a previous memory.
When Katniss thought back to the day Peeta gave her burnt bread and got hit for it.
This made Katniss appreciate what Peeta did and know that he was willing to sacrifice himself for her.
The practice of representing things by symbols.
The mokingjay pin stands for the rebellion and how they used the mocking jay to trick the capital.
It gave Katniss hope and motivation.
An extreme exaggeration.
When Katniss thought " I can't go strolling into that mess without blowing myself sky high."
Katniss thought that when she was examining the land mines, while trying to sabotage the career tributes food supply.
The main character in a story
Katniss Everdeen
This effects the story because her life experiences make it possible for her to win the
Hunger Games.

All of district 12's inhabitants meet at the town square because today is reaping day. Katniss, Prim, and Gale go together to see who will be chosen by Effie Trinket to compete in the Hunger Games. The female name chosen is Prim but Katniss volunteers instead. The male name is Peeta. Katniss and Peeta now have to travel to the training center to prepare for the games.
This gives the story the necessary input to understand the characters and what they are about to have to do.
Katniss and Peeta learn new skills at the training center to help them survive in the games. Peeta reveals on air that he loves Katniss, but Katniss thinks that he just said that to get sponsors for them during the games. On the first day of the competition 11 tributes die, but Katniss and Peeta are both still alive.
This makes the reader nervous for Katniss and Peeta.
Katniss learns that she and Peeta can win together, so she finds him injured and takes care of him. Unfortunately, the rules change again and they learn they have to kill each other to win.
It makes them want to commit suicide so no one can win.
The Hunger Games is a novel about the "haves" and the "have nots" – that is, the people who have money and the people who don't
The people in the capital have more food and entertainment than you can imagine while the people in the districts are starved and worked to death.
Language that appeals to the senses.
When Katniss sees Peeta after they escape the cornacopia she thinks "His face is swollen with bruises, there's a bloody bandage on one arm, and from what it sounds of his gait he's limping somewhat."
She is scared that he has to kill her and is working with the career tributes.
Katniss has to fight the career tributes to survive. She also fights against the arena and its booby traps.
This makes the story more suspenseful knowing she has to face these dangers to survive.
The tone that Susan Collins intended for the hunger games to be is serious and suspenseful.
The tone helps the reader understand how the districts continue to suffer throughout the book.
A use of words whose sounds echo their meanings.
"Snap! The sound of a breaking branch wakes me"
This awakens Katniss from a deep sleep to find a girl lighting a fire. The girl is found and killed because the fire showed the others where she was located. Katniss gets scared that the career tributes are going to find her, too.
In general, a contrast between what is said or written and what is meant .
Prim has only one slip in the bowl with her name on it at the Reaping but is chosen anyway.
The irony is that Katniss has her name in the bowl 20 times but Prim's one slip in the bowl was chosen. This shows how cruel the Reaping is that the smaller, weaker one was chosen over the bigger, stronger one who had more slips.
A person who is opposed to, struggles against, or competes with another; opponent; adversary.
President Snow
He is the leader of Panem who authorizes the games and the cruelty in the games.
Vantage point or from whose view the story is being told.
The story is told in the first person and recounts the narrator’s personal history and experiences.
This is a good factor to the story because you get to learn what Katniss experiences, thinks, and what she says.
