In this novel, the main character Katniss, who possesses the ability to hunt with great ease and expertise, is called to saving her sister Prims life when she is announced as a tribute. When the representatives from the capitol of her world come to her district for the annual reaping, or when two people are chosen from each district to participate as ‘tributes’ in the Hunger Games, Katnis realizes that her life will never be the same, and for her Prims life is much more important then her own. Katnip as her beloved friend would call her does something completely unheard of and volunteers herself to go to the games in place of her sister. “Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.” She is chosen to go alongside the son of District Twelve’s bakers, Peeta Mellark.
There are many examples of how the Capitol controls the people of Panem such as the Hunger Games, Reality TV, and control of food. The Hunger Game is where children are forced to fight to death in the arena for entertainment. One girl and one boy aged 12-18 are chosen from each of the 12 districts. Katniss the protagonist of the novel sacrifices herself and volunteers for her sister who was picked as tribute at only the age of 12. “Look how we take your children and sacrifice them and there’s nothing you can do.
Hester could have just gave up Pearl because she felt all alone in life and like an outcast but she begged and pleaded because she felt that she had the right to keep her and she was going to defend the right to the death of her. Hester cries “god gave me my child, he gave her to me as compensation that you have taking from me Pearl punishes me to…” in chapter 8. Hester has a good heart and that she would take well care of Pearl. No other person could understand a childlike Pearl and doesn’t have that relationship between her and her
(23.86-87) Aunty sees the Finch name like an exclusive brand – it’s valuable when you can only find it at Bloomingdale’s, but make it available at Wal-Mart and it’ll seem cheap. Aunt Alexandra’s obsession with “What Is Best For the Family” (13.22) – in Scout’s ears, Aunty often speaks in Capital Letters Of Doom – is part of her more general way of classifying people by family heritage. Aunt Alexandra, in underlining the moral of young Sam Merriweather's suicide, said it was caused by a morbid streak in the family. Let a sixteen-year-old girl giggle in the choir and Aunty would say, "It just goes to show you, all the Penfield women are flighty." Everybody in Maycomb, it seemed, had a Streak: a Drinking Streak, a Gambling Streak, a Mean Streak, a Funny Streak.
Therefore even though Arrow was being hard on herself for the killings, she did what was best for the people around her. Another decision that Arrow made which revealed her morals was when she was appointed to her new commander and is told to shoot at a target. She rebels with the statement, “I’m not going to kill an innocent civilian.”(Galloway 224) Arrow showed the ability to have the will power to go against the man’s order and do what she believed was right. Arrow was the only reason the city of Sarajevo stayed somewhat sane as she kept the legacy of the cellist
I think Ismene changed her mid because Antigone is her sister and you always stand up for family. She didn’t want to commit the crime because she was trying to talk Antigone out of doing the crime. In the end Ismene is the only one who lives and has a kind of guilt free life. She may not have family left besides Creon but at least she tried to save them. I think out all the characters she made the smarter choices and she thought about the consequences.
Ultimately, her main argument is that “It is the dead, / Not the living, who make the longest demands: / We die forever….” (2.58-60). Antigone relies solely on her beliefs in the divine law and that in the end, when she dies, the gods will be more important than the city in which she lived. Never did she doubt the god’s ways even though it went against civil law and the approval of her sister. In regards to Creon’s ruling on the death of her brother she states, “Which of us can say what the gods hold wicked?” (2.116). Her preference for divine law is shown here as well because she’s implying that Creon has no authority to judge what the gods will end up judging.
In The Hunger Games, government control worked differently by having the Capitol, as the government city, wealthy with unlimited access to food and supplies, while leaving each district fighting for food in different ways of making money such as mining, fishing, and farming. There are boundaries around each district that you are not allowed to travel out of resulting in death. The Government hosts the annual Hunger Games throwing two people, a boy and girl, from each district into a capitol made stadium in a fight to the death battle aired on television for entertainment. Our government is nothing like this but you can relate how the government makes the rules are if you do not follow them you are punished. There are a lot of laws that people disagree with but have to live with
She can’t let her sister die from starvation, so she hunts for food, and becomes a good hunter at shooting arrows. They don’t have a lot of money, so this is a way out for her to have fun and not be in the district. It allows her to advanture out in the woods and her things, and to be a kid with gale. The key players in the book so far are; Katniss, peeta, prim, haymitch, and gale. Katniss plays the leading role as the strongest and brave, peeta is seen as weak but also sweet.
The novel is set sometime in the future in a post-apocalyptic land, formerly known as North America, called Panem which consists of thirteen districts. After District Thirteen revolted, it was annihilated by the Capitol. From that point on the Capitol initiated the Hunger Games, a gladiator-like event that is broadcast across the nation. Each district “must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes” (18). Those children who are selected will be killed off by other players until one of them wins the game by being the last person
