Transcript of The Hunger Games GYBAR

Character Conflict Theme The Hunger Games A GYBAR project
By Cecelia Kersten Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen year old girl living in a dastardly post apocalyptic society where every year two children, a boy and a girl, from each of the twelve districts of Panem are chosen to fight to the death until there is one standing victor. Katniss steps up and volunteers for her sister, entering herself into the game. This exemplifies the courage that she purveys throughout the novel. Although, because she is so adapted to being protective, and courageous, she has as little interaction with others from her district as she can. Setting Though the book is based upon and titled, "The Hunger Games", most of the story takes place outside of the competition, the games are always lingering as a sort of foreshadowing. This award winning book has been set in the distant future, a harsh, judgemental enviroment surrounding everyone and everything within the novel. Outer Conflict I think that Katniss struggles with opening up to characters such as Peeta, and Effie, given her difficult past compared to their posh lifestyles. It begins to push those closest to her farther and farther away with time. Through the trilogy, Katniss must learn that emotion is not weakness, and in order to keep relationships she has to trust those around her. Granted, the Hunger Games is a competition in which children are forced to fight to the death, but I decided to look beyond the obvious. A vicious character named Cato is introduced to the reader while the tributes are in training. He takes an immediate distaste to Katniss when she outscores him in the preliminary rounds and takes a vow to be her killer. He is Katniss' biggest threat/concern throughout the book, therefore his is the cause of much of the 'outer conflict'. Inner Conflict Climax After all the other tributes had passed, the announcer for the games, Claudius Templesmith, comes over the loudspeaker and announces to the two celebratory district twelve tributes that there has been a change of rules. Only one person may be the victor and one of them must now kill the other on the spot. Katniss and Peeta, newly infatuated with each other, did not want their relationship to end like this, so they both grasped a handful of the poisonous arena berries and gingerly puit them in their own mouths. Upon seeing this the officials were quick to reliquish their sudden rule in order for there to be a champion, whether that be one champion, or two champions. This being said, both were spared, and both were equally showered with the gifts reserved for only the winning tribute(s) and their district's. Resolution The resolution of the story is when the gamekeeper for the Hunger Games is lured into a room with nothing but a bowlful of what is none other than the arena berries Katniss and Peeta almost committed suicide with just earlier. Though this has nothing to do with the novel's main characters, it symbolizes the conclusion of the plot line. Here is the man who put the tributes through all of the torture, being tricked into killing himself by his own colleagues. This is, metaphorically speaking, what the Hunger Games represent. they have become the usual, murders, suicides, have all become a game to the citizens of Panem, and this man dying means that no one is safe from the evil, not even those who create it. This entails setting up the plots for the next two sequels in this blockbuster trilogy. I've concluded that the moral of the story is that violence can never solve your problems, it can only stall them. The fact that these poignant games tore apart a nation after the wealthy capital of the government forced those who've made mistakes children to kill each other once a year. In Panem's case, it made the civilians infuriated, and ultimately led to a relapse of what caused these games in the first place; an uprising. So before you're to act out on someone, rethink you options and take the high road, the more political route and steer clear of the unforgiving world of violence and crimes.
