Transcript of The Hunger Games

Katniss Everdeen Major/ Dynamic Character
In the beginning of the story, Katniss didn't think that she could actually win the Hunger Games. But towards the end, she had more confidence and she pushed to stay alive for the sake of Prim. Plus, Katniss had a stronger relationship with Peeta after the Hunger Games, due to the fact they had to depend on each other to survive. 'I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.' Pg. 121 Jennifer Lawrence Katniss Everdeen, from District 12, was a tribute for Hunger Games. But along the path of survival, she performed rebellious acts against the Capitol. Katniss then had to face consequences, as she tried to keep the ones she cared about alive. Peeta Mellark Peeta Mellark is the other tribute from District 12. Peeta says he has a crush on Katniss when being interviewed, and explains that he was lying to get more sponsors. But throughout the story you see that Peeta wasn't lying. Peeta Mellark Peeta Mellark was the other tribute from
District 12. When interviewed before the
Hunger Games, Peeta said he had a crush
Katniss. He later explained to Katniss that
he was lying to get more sponsors. But
throughout the story, you could tell that Peeta
actually had feelings for Katniss. Major/ Dynamic
Peeta went from a baker's son to a survivor of the Hunger Games. This made him stronger, and allowed him to figure out what his special talents were. Plus, he confessed about his crush on Katniss and this brought about a strong bond between them. 'Only I keep wishing I could think of a way to show the Capitol they don't own me. That I'm more than just a piece in their Games.'
Pg. 142 Gale Hawthorne Gale Hawthorne was Katniss's best friend.
Before Katniss was involved with the Hunger
Games, Gale was her hunting comrade. Gale and
Katniss had a tight friendship, and they
hunted in the forbidden forest to support both families. Liam Hemsworth Minor/Static
Gale was a static character, and he was only written about in the beginning of the book. The author didn't get into depth about his reaction to Katniss and Peeta's relationship. "We could do it, you know. Leave the district. Run off. Live in the woods. You and I, we could make it." Pg. 9 Haymitch Abernathy Woody Harrelson Haymitch was a victor of the 50th
Hunger Games. After his victory he took on a drinking habit. He was from Disrict 12 and served as a mentor for Katniss and Peeta during the 74th Hunger Games. Major/ Dynamic
In the beginning of the
story, Haymitch was a wreck. He
finally promised to pull himself
together and stop his drinking
habit, in order to help Katniss and
Peeta survive the Hunger Games. "Stay alive." Pg. 139 Rue Rue was a 12 year old
tribute from District 11, and
an ally with Katniss during
the Hunger Games. Katniss first
showed the Capitol that she was a
rebel, when she wrapped flowers on
Rue after her death. Minor/Static
Throughout the story
Rue maintains her innocent
yet strong personality. Amandla Stenberg "She can move through the woods like a shadow."
Pg. 199 The protagonist of the story was Katniss
and the antagonist of the book was The
Capitol. Although she didn't completely
plan it, Katniss began the start of a rebellion when
she tied flowers on Rue and took out the deathly berries in the arena. The Capitol controlled all the disricts, and tried to stop Katniss from tearing them down. Protagonist/Antagonist Setting
The setting of the story took place
in a country called Panem. It was made
of 13 districts, and the thirteenth district
was supposedly destroyed by the Capitol. Panem rose up out of the ashes after North America was destroyed by catastrophic events. (Pg.18)

Later in the book, the setting took place in the
Hunger Games arena. The arena was described as having an open stretch of ground, a cliff, a lake, and piney woods. (Pg. 148)

The setting affected the fact of being able to survive or not. In the arena, Katniss faced obstacles such as needing a source of water, or trying to bear a forest fire. Plus, with the Capitol closely watching her, Katniss had to think about her actions. Story Line
The country of Panem was made up of 13 disricts, and the thirteenth district was obliterated by the Capitol of Panem after an uprising. Each year, Panem hosted an event called the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games existed to remind people what happened to District 13 after the rebellion. During this event, a male and female tribute chosen from each district fought to death in an arena, until one person was left. Katniss Everdeen, from District 12, became a tribute for District 12 after volunteering in place of her sister Prim. The male tribute from District 12 ended up being Peeta Mellark, the son of a baker. Throughout the story, Peeta and Katniss acted as if they were star- crossed lovers in order to get sponsors and stay alive during the games. At the end of the story, Katniss and Peeta were the final contestants in the Hunger Games, and only one of them could survive. Until, Katniss came up with a plan for them to both die when eating deadly berries at the same time. The head of the Hunger Games stopped them before Katniss and Peeta do so, making the Capitol look like a fool. Both tributes became victors, and everything seemed okay. But things were not. The Capitol was upset with Katniss's act of rebellion. Primary Conflict
The primary conflict was between Katniss and survival. She promised Prim she would stay alive, and she pushed herself to fulfill that promise. But that wasn't the only conflict. The fact that she had a bad relationship with the Capitol, only made it harder not to lose her life and the lives of those she loved. Climax
The climax of the story was when Katniss pulled out the deadly Nightlock berries. That showed people across Panem that she was a rebel. And it only stirred things up between her and the Capitol. RESOLUTION
At the end of the Hunger Games, the author left the reader hanging, talking about Katniss and Peeta's awkward relationship after Peeta realized Katniss was acting out the whole star-crossed lovers bit. Peeta actually had feelings for Katniss, but Katniss didn't feel the same in the first book. The Hunger Games was the first book in the trilogy. PREDICTION
After the last book in the Hunger Games trilogy, the next chapter might be about Katniss and Peeta's kids. How they become like their parents, and whether or not they will carry on their own legacy. IMAGERY
'One time, when I was in a blind in a tree, waiting motionless for game to wander by, I dozed off and fell ten feet to the ground, landing on my back. It was as if the impact had knocked every wisp of air from my lungs, and I lay there struggling to inhale, to exhale, to do anything. That's how I feel right now.'
(Pg. 21)
This imagery appeals to the feeling sense. The author was trying to show how desperate and shocked Katniss felt when Prim was chosen for the reaping. IMAGERY
'All the general fear I've been feeling
condenses into an immediate fear of this
girl, this predator who might kill me in
seconds. Adrenaline shoots through me
and I sling the pack over one shoulder and
run full-speed for the woods.'
(Pg. 151)
The author was trying to explain to the reader
how nerve wrecking it felt for Katniss to have
her life on the line. THEME
The theme of the story is that you should believe in what you think is right, no matter if someone or something tries to stop you. On pg. 237, there is an example of the theme. Katniss ties flowers on Rue's dead body, and she does this to show the Capitol that she's more than just a piece in their games.

In the text Katniss says, "They'll have to show it. Or, even if they choose to turn the cameras elsewhere at this moment, they'll have to bring them back when they collect the bodies and everyone will see her then and know I did it." Katniss- the girl on fire.
