Battle for Life Hunger Games
War, a terrible war. A war in the form of a game. How would you feel if you were a tribute in a game like that? The hunger games by Suzanne Collins is a dystopian novel reflecting on the world we live in right now. The hunger games have many aspects that reflect on this world. The dystopian novel portrays the biased government(the capitol) and the social classes we live by. I am here to convince you that The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is an engaging book and movie for teenage audiences and should be read by them. In my speech, I will cover the themes of power and society & class and how they help to engage the audience
Collins confronts readers with the harsh reality of life in the districts where the people are not allowed to speak up. Districts which are controlled by the Capitol aren’t allowed to speak up or do any rebellious activity against it because the Capitol will cut off the tongue, proving they have more power over the districts. This dystopian concept is showcased through the usage of emotive language and dialogue that is experienced by the characters. “What’s an Avox?” I ask stupidly. “Someone who committed a crime. They cut her tongue so she can’t speak,” says Haymitch. “She’s probably a traitor of some sort. Not likely you’d know her.” This portrays the power the Capitol has on the Distract. How is this a fair system? The Capitol is like our world, where power and injustice take place, causing many innocent people suffering just like the people from the districts. Many people in our world today, don’t speak up for their rights or opinion because the authorities that are ruling have more power, as a threat to go against them. Overall this element of collin’s novel reinforce how “the hunger game” engage teenage audiences by reflecting on our world.
Collins informs the readers about the judgemental social class they have in their world through this novel. In many cases, you get given respect, opportunity and resources depending on where in the social class you sit. How is this a fair social system? This is showcased through the use of Contrast and imagery which helps to grab the audience’s attention. “They do surgery in the Capitol, to make people appear younger and thinner. In District 12, looking old is something of an achievement since so many people die early.” This shows how much the Capitol is higher in society because they are open to more resources than the people in the districts. The people get more money to spend on desirable needs, such as their appearance when the people in the districts barely get food to eat on a daily basis. Similarly in our world, the upper class gets to spend money on their desires whereas the lower class can barely feed themself. Therefore this once again emphasizes the idea of how “The hunger games” engages teenage audiences via showing the world they currently live in.
In conclusion, The hunger games is an engaging novel and should be read by teenagers. The novel is more engaging and appealing to teenage audience because of the use of language techniques and relating it to their world today. I encourage you to read the hunger games and learn the importance in our life.

The film The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and the text Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll both examine the notion of point of view. However, both plots are formed through the close interaction between the reader and the narrator. The narrator’s influential role forms what will be expressed through the narrative and what will be portrayed for the reader to observe. Through the use of both visual and verbal discourse, the texts signify features of focalization, narration, charisma, and...
The Hunger Games is a merciless opportunity, meaning inevitable death except for one of the contestants. From the start, it appears to be about incomprehensible that the frightful reason behind these anecdotal games would ever move toward becoming reality. Be that as it may, can we truly be so certain? Let’s be honest, as a species, we don’t actually have an outstanding reputation with regard to treating human existence with delicacy and care. In old Rome, watching warriors, detainees, and...
Throughout the novel, names have significant roles in identifying both people and places by matching their characteristics with their definitions. In the beginning, on page 21, there is an introduction to districts, and later on page 80, it begins to describe how each district is characterized by something different from the rest. For example; District 12 is coal miners, District 11 is agriculture, and District 4 is fishing. A district is defined as an area of a country or city,...
This semester in Literature we read two best-selling science fiction books, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Divergent by Veronica Roth. There are many similarities between the two books in setting, characters, plot, and themes. Both The Hunger Games and Divergent take place in dystopias after some future apocalypse in North America. Both books have a 16-year-old female protagonist as the main character, and both books have events early on in the story that help set the plot of...

Suzanne Collins`s The Hunger Games trilogy, a dystopian story set in post-apocalyptic North America – now Panem, has been heralded as one of the greatest Young Adult book series, losing only to Harry Potter in NPR`s poll of the one hundred best teen novels. The Hunger Games is largely a tale of conflict, exploitation, and rebellion, with political and economic issues at the narrative`s core. Karl Marx argues that the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of...
The Lottery is a very similar story to that of Hunger Games, which is a modern movie that has a similar theme. The tradition is not like one that most people would assume, rather it is quite wicked. Each year, citizens gather to pick the drawing on slips of paper of who will be put to death. Over the years, some formalities of this lottery have changed, however, much has stayed the same. Including the idea that citizens are left...
Today I’ll be discussing two different representations of dystopian societies in films. The term “dystopia” comes from ancient Greece (meaning bad place). It is used to describe a society or community that is considered to not follow the typical structure of an efficient society and instead reflects the possible lives we could be living if the worst-case scenarios did ever occur. The three representations I will be discussing are: The Hunger Games The Maze Runner The Hunger Games is a...
