Transcript of The Hunger Games
J.K Rowling FARAAZ AAMIR "Absolutely Stunning"
FIRE Common Theme: Love and Friendship The theme of Love and Friendship has great significance in both novels and is evident throughout the plots of my chosen books. Both novels are based around love and friendship as it has a great impact on the character's decisions and the novels' events. The author (Suzanne Collins) has used the elements of Language, Structure, Plot, and Characters to convey the theme to the audience. Structure Non-Linear Structure Both novels have a Non- Linear structure as characters have a regular occurrence of flashbacks which are often used to give background information. novels are in a sequence 'The Hunger Games' and 'Catching Fire' are both from the same series written by Suzanne Collins. First Person Narrative Both novels are narrated by the main character Katniss Everdeen) to give the audience a better understanding on how the events personally affect Katniss. suspenseful endings to chapters Chapters of both novels tend to end at a particular moment to build suspense and to keep the readers at the edge of their seats. characters The characters in both novels play an important role in conveying the theme and creating the effect that Suzanne Collins desired. katniss everdeen Since both of these novels are from the same series, they both share the same characters. The main characters of the Hunger Games series are: peeta mellark
Katniss Everdeen is first introduced as a person who is quite solitary and antisocial. She tends to keep to herself and has become significantly independent after the death of her father, as she has filled in his shoes and keeps her family alive. At the start of the novel her life consisted of three people; Prim (her sister/ the most important person in her life), her mother, and her bestfriend, Gale. The Games change her life, and despite her victory, she had lost the one thing she deeply prized, privacy. The theme of love and friendship is very evident in the scene of the reapings, where Katniss volunteers to take her sister's place in the hunger games as an act of heroic self-sacrifice. The theme is reinforced throughout the novel as she has to fake 'true love' with Peeta in order to have a chance of surviving the hunger games. During the hunger games, Katniss begins to develop feelings for Peeta which also emphasizes the key theme. Both novels are based on the life of a teenager named Katniss Everdeen. Being the main character and narrator of both novels, Katniss was the key 'element' of the Hunger Games series to communicate and express the theme of Love and Friendship to the audience. In the second novel 'Catching Fire', Katniss becomes closer friends with the mayor's daughter, Madge. Katniss realizes that she will never have a life with Gale. She will have to 'pretend' to love Peeta for the rest of her life in order to keep her family and Gale alive. Peeta and Katniss resolve issues and break the tension that used to exist between them. Katniss becomes more 'open' towards him and they move on in their friendship. Peeta Mellark is a very 'strong' character in both novels. Some aspects of his personality contrast that of Katniss', as Suzanne Collins has portrayed him as a very friendly and easy going person. It is revealed in the first novel that Peeta has been in love with Katniss ever since he was 5. "In that woods waits the only person with whom i can be myself. Gale." Although Peeta's feelings for Katniss were genuine, he was hurt to discover that Katniss' were not. Language Suzanne Collins has used various Language techniques in both novels ' The Hunger Games' and 'Catching Fire'. These techniques include imagery, motifs, dialogue and Simile. language Imagery Suzanne Collins uses descriptive language to create an image in the reader's mind. "He could be my brother. Straight black hair, olive skin; we even have the same grey eyes." (Katniss describing Gale) Motifs These are recurring symbols or themes that have importance and may indicate something deeper than the surface. E.g. Fire plays many roles throughout both novels. Most often, it represents Katniss. In this context, it symbolizes Katniss' spirit and temperament. Simile The author has used simile's throughout both novels to make comparisons. "The four adults are watching me like hawks" (Katniss commenting on the stylists) PLOT The plot of both novels is full of events which convey the theme of Love and Friendship. Katniss has to say her goodbyes to all of her friends of District 12 in the first novel. But in her journey she also makes friends (Effie Trinket, Cinna, Peeta). The two main characters (Katniss and Peeta) have to act out a 'fake' relationship in order to survive. In the first novel, Katniss is not much fond of Madge (The mayors daughter). But in the second novel Katniss and Madge are described as close friends. In the second novel, Katniss comes to realization that she will have to marry Peeta to insure the survival of her loved ones. the end
