True love makes impossible things come possible. There are many cases where love is expressed at The Hunger Games especially when Katniss decides to go to the games only to save to her sister, “ I volunteer!”, I gasp. “ I volunteer as tribute!” (pg.36).
The composer Suzanne Collins of ‘The Hunger Games’ demonstrates that Katniss is a good hero through her courageous qualities. This is evident through this quote “how could I leave prim, who is the only person in the world I am certain I love” (chapter 1 page 11). Katniss demonstrates loving and having lots of courage through volunteering pushing her sister and taking her place proving this is seen through these words “who is the only person in the world I am certain I love”. The effect of emotive language and short sentences making us feel the emotion of katniss like we are there and can hear her. We can hear through these effect s that katniss doesn't think about what going to happen next only caring about prims safety. Throughout this book we can see that katniss has a lot of other qualities.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many themes. Love, rivalry, arguing with parents, friendship, and fate and destiny. These themes are used today, too. For example, love. Love is the main theme in Romeo and Juliet. Nowadays, love is what most of the stories contain. It can be said that love is the most entertaining theme for the audience. Romeo and Juliet is a master piece and
Katniss has an edge over many of the other tributes because she often lives not knowing if she is going to make it through the night. For years she has been responsible for the life or death of her family. She was devastated by the death of her father, though she recalls many of his fine talents and qualities. Throughout the training and the Games, she fights against feeling friendship for Peeta Mellark because she knows
To begin with, Katniss and Jonas share several things in common. For one, the settings of the stories both characters live in are considered a dystopian world. In The Hunger Games, the dystopian element is clearly evident, as it is described so by the
Imagine living in a world where man hunts man for sport or are made to kill each other in a publicly televised event. These are the world's that the characters Rainsford and Katniss live in. In the book A Most Dangerous Game the character Rainsford finds himself on an island where a man named General Zaroff hunts him and many more before him, for sport. In the movie The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen lives in a world where people are split up into twelve different districts. The government takes two people, a boy and a girl, from each district and throws them into an arena to fight to the death. Rainsford and Katniss both possess the skills and traits of a true survivor. These skills and traits are using intelligence over strength, showing compassion to others, and triumphing over those who only use strength.
In the Hunger Games Katniss and Gale have a bit of a love triangle while
One time I was writing a paper for school. I usually have my Dad proof read it so any mistakes in spelling or grammar won’t be on it when I turn my papers in. This time I wanted to do it by myself, with no help. So that is what I did. I was determined to get a good grade and prove to my parents that I could get a good grade with hard work. So, finally the day that the paper was due, I turned it in, feeling that I’ll get a good grade. My determination and hard work lead to a good grade. Much like the characters in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. You might say that Romeo’s determination led to him finally led him to be with Juliet.
The first tragic similarity in Romeo and Juliet and To Kill A Mockingbird is they both have conflicts. For example, the conflict of the Capulets and the Montagues is stated at the very beginning of the play. These two families are of equal
“We had to save you because you're the Mockingjay, Katniss, says Plutarch. While you live, the revolution lives” (Collins). Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games is a complex character who epitomizes the archetype of a hero, however, she also shatters the mold by rebelling against the capital and endangering her whole family. She starts out as a hero to her family, especially her sister, and then becomes the symbol of strength to everyone. Katniss sacrifices herself by volunteering to join the Hunger Games in place of her sister, it is a game of survival where a boy and a girl from each district are forced to fight the other members of other districts to the death. By going out of her ordinary world and preparing to join a game where her life could be taken, she fits right into the archetype of a hero. Her bow and arrow, the weapon that only she can wield, will be the only things to help her survive. Despite these heroic qualities, Katniss makes an erroneous decision and blunder mistakes that shows the reader the flip side of Katniss.
The settings of these two books are different, because The Hunger Games mainly takes place in the arena, and “The Lottery” takes place in a public town spot. In “The Lottery”, there's really no romance, but in The Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta are shown to the world as a couple. I think is actually a good tactic when trying to get sponsors and surviving because Peeta does protect Katniss and I believe he really does have feelings for her, as she does for him. Katniss is confused about her feelings for Gale, I think that she probably does care for Gale, but personally I think she cares for Peeta more. Otherwise why would she have risked her life for for him? Like when each district got a pack, and she ended up giving Peeta the sleeping syrup so she could go get the pack so Peeta could survive.
When one loves a person or thing dearly, then they have the tendency to do almost anything they can to protect and save them from whatever harm they come across. Katniss volunteered for the games knowing she was saving her sister from a terrible fate. She made a promise that she would try her best to win the Hunger Games, but her confidence in her own ability to kill another person was minimal. She did not want to get any blood on her hands but knew that in order to win she would be forced to. The author of Genocidal Killer, Crispin Sartwell recognized situations like these when he said, “your goodness, like mine, has little to do with who you are and everything to do with the social conditions you find yourself in” (Sartwell). The circumstance Katniss found herself in was full of violence, pain, and ruthlessness which further contributed to the tainting of her
Romeo and Juliet was Shakespeare’s most famous play which is about love of two teenagers of two rival families. Since Romeo’s family and Juliet’s family are rivals, their families don’t agree with the marriage of their children to each other. However, Romeo and Juliet despite the opposition of their families secretly get married at church and insist on reaching their goal of being together. The whole story is played in the theatre style of the Renaissance; audiences could see violence, young boys are playing female rolls without wearing masks, many scenes and time change. However, if it was played in Greek theatre style, the audience could see a different style of performance and there would be a different effect. In Greek Theatre we would
In The Hunger Games, there are many significant plots show Katniss and Peeta try hard to overcome many difficulties. To begin, Katniss has a big conflict with Career Tributes who
