The Mockingjay symbol of a revolution Power and dangers of mass media in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins Book Description:

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject American Studies - Literature, University of Graz (Amerikanistik), course: Literary Studies Proseminar (American Young Adult Fiction from 1950 to Today), language: English, abstract: This paper is concerned with one of the most preeminent motifs in Suzanne Collins’ "The Hunger Games" trilogy. It poses the question why the use of mass media plays such a dominant role throughout all three novels. The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that mass media functions as a powerful tool to control, manipulate, and ultimately, free the population of the fictional state Panem. It will show that mass media is one of the most essential components of the novels that drives the story development and significantly contributes to the storyline’s arc of suspense. Also, it will examine the reoccurring symbol of the Mockingjay, and how the main character Katniss Everdeen becomes the figurehead of the revolution. In this paper I am going to prove that this is also a consequence of mass media, which will support my thesis that mass media is the central element of The Hunger Games. "The Hunger Games" introduces the reader to the fictional state Panem that emerged after a disastrous Third World War in which the majority of the earth’s population got killed. The remaining survivors founded the state of Panem. Panem consists of the wealthy Capitol and twelve poorer districts ruled by the Capitol. The Capitol is lavishly rich and technologically advanced but the twelve districts are in varying states of poverty. The reader follows the story of sixteen- year-old Katniss Everdeen from District 12. In order to prevent a rebellion against the Capitol the tyrant President Snow annually hosts the so called Hunger Games; an arena fight of life and death, in which every year one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 of each District must participate. After taking her little sister’s place in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss involuntarily gets in between the ongoing fight for power between President Snow and the rebellious District 13. After winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss becomes a symbol of hope for the oppressed districts and a key figure for the following revolution and the war against Snow and the Capitol.

The Artemis Archetype in Popular Culture Book Description:

Many female figures in recent fiction, film, and television embody the Artemis archetype, modeled on the Greco-Roman goddess of the hunt. These characters are often identified as heroines and recognized as powerful and progressive pop icons. Some fit the image of the tough, resourceful female in a science fiction or fantasy setting, while others are more relatable, inhabiting a possible future, a recent past, or a very real present. Examining both iconic and lesser-known works, this collection of new essays analyzes the independent and capable female figure as an ideal representation of women in popular culture.

Space and Place in The Hunger Games Book Description:

An international bestseller and the inspiration for a blockbuster film series, Suzanne Collins’s dystopian, young adult trilogy The Hunger Games has also attracted attention from literary scholars. While much of the criticism has focused on traditional literary readings, this innovative collection explores the phenomena of place and space in the novels—how places define people, how they wield power to create social hierarchies, and how they can be conceptualized, carved out, imagined and used. The essays consider wide-ranging topics: the problem of the trilogy’s Epilogue; the purpose of the love triangle between Katniss, Gale and Peeta; Katniss’s role as “mother”; and the trilogy as a textual “safe space” to explore dangerous topics. Presenting the trilogy as a place and space for multiple discourses—political, social and literary—this work assertively places The Hunger Games in conversation with the world in which it was written, read, and adapted.

Reading in the Dark Book Description:

Dark novels, shows, and films targeted toward children and young adults are proliferating wildly. It is even more crucial now to understand the methods by which such texts have traditionally operated and how those methods have been challenged, abandoned, and appropriated. Reading in the Dark fills a gap in criticism devoted to children's popular culture by concentrating on horror, an often-neglected genre. These scholars explore the intersection between horror, popular culture, and children's cultural productions, including picture books, fairy tales, young adult literature, television, and monster movies. Reading in the Dark looks at horror texts for children with deserved respect, weighing the multitude of benefits they can provide for young readers and viewers. Refusing to write off the horror genre as campy, trite, or deforming, these essays instead recognize many of the texts and films categorized as "scary" as among those most widely consumed by children and young adults. In addition, scholars consider how adult horror has been domesticated by children's literature and culture, with authors and screenwriters turning that which was once horrifying into safe, funny, and delightful books and films. Scholars likewise examine the impetus behind such re-envisioning of the adult horror novel or film as something appropriate for the young. The collection investigates both the constructive and the troublesome aspects of scary books, movies, and television shows targeted toward children and young adults. It considers the complex mechanisms by which these texts communicate overt messages and hidden agendas, and it treats as well the readers' experiences of such mechanisms.
