The final book Mockingjay ends the trilogy with the image of the Meadow, which as a kind of utopian vision represents another feature of pastoral — as a redeemed future Garrard, , p. But Peeta wanted them so badly ….

How can I tell them about that world without frightening them to death? My children, who take the words of the song for granted: Deep in the meadow, under the willow A bed of grass, a soft green pillow Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes And when you awake, the sun will rise. The mass graveyard underlying the Meadow mirrors the deep psychological damage and protracted recovery of Katniss and Peeta on an environmental level. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.

As the above model illustrates, pastoral is characterised by a simplicity that symbolises the dominant theme of an innocent and unpretentious life, removed from war, consumerism, competition and city stress.

The students could be invited to emphasise in their creative writing the temporal distinction common in pastoral — usually present versus past — echoed in The Hunger Games as the distinction between a fallen present and a hopeful future, mankind living in harmony with nature. Wilderness The wilderness tradition belongs to the most influential of American traditions. It derives from New World Romanticism fascinated with the wild as acultural, offering, according to Timothy Clark , p.

The dynamic of many texts in this originally androcentric tradition is the shift from human society towards a state of solitude where man finds himself. Clearly this is also a danger with The Hunger Games, just as it is with much subversive literature. Therefore booktalk and filmtalk in the classroom play an important role in encouraging multilayered, insightful readings. The very culture critiqued by The Hunger Games is of course adapting the narrative to its own ends, for example with the many video games now available and a growing collection of Barbie Dolls based on the movies.

This development offers numerous opportunities for practising critical literacy in the classroom. Katniss as she enters the arena in the film of [End of Page 30] Catching Fire see Figure 1 has already been remodelled by the Capitol and real-life movie stylists.

Fortunately, she still appears strong, athletic and recognisably human. The Barbie Doll industry however, predictably, has created a vulnerable looking, glossy-haired Katniss with a dangerously unhealthy body shape Figure 2.

The first is the woodland wilderness surrounding both Districts 12 and 13, where Katniss and Gale hunt. These woods serve as a wild space for temporarily fleeing the force of the corrupt Capitol, which relies on the virtual enslavement of the districts.


The landscapes of the arena are a second wilderness setting, but these are constructed by the Capitol and made hazardous and deceitful on purpose. Both kinds of wilderness are potentially dangerous — however the natural wilderness of the woods has cornucopian qualities, it is manageable for those with the skills to understand it. Nonetheless, the battleground of the arena is less deadly for those who have learned to read the environment.

She can melt into the wilderness, where she finds shelter, food and medicine. Undoubtedly some students will be highly interested in the transfer of storyworld negotiation of the wilderness to real life survival skills in a nonfiction handbook.

Katniss fights for Prim. Peeta fights for Katniss. Gale fights for freedom. Exploring Relationships with the Environment in The Hunger Games Not only humans but also other species alter the environment, though of course humans do so in a dangerous and deliberately speciesist way.

This can be initiated by The Hunger Games, for the storyworld interrogates a human culture the Capitol that is hyperseparated from nonhuman nature. Val Plumwood , p.

The Hunger Games invests nature with [End of Page 32] weight and even with agency. The empathetic characters model an active participatory role in the ecology of Panem. Students might be invited to make a note of descriptions of food found in the wilderness, and compare this to the wild greens collected for food or herbal teas in their own culture.

That night, we gorged ourselves on dandelion salad and the rest of the bakery bread. Not from some illness of body or mind, not from spoiled food.

Part of the fun. The choice of the mockingjay bird as symbol for the revolution adds to the idea of agentic creativity in nature. Nature overcame the Capitol-engineered, genetically altered jabberjays by creating a new species — the all male jabberjays mating with female mockingbirds to produce the aurally creative mockingjays.

During the rebellion, the Capitol bred a series of genetically altered [End of Page 33] animals as weapons. The final book is named Mockingjay, and the series ends with a core of hope emerging from despair. Students could research different wildlife management projects and promising large-scale rewilding projects, presenting a report to the class. Students might research symbols of hope in different cultures using Google Images, considering why certain symbols, such as birds, are popular; alternatively they could design their own symbol of hope and present and explain it to the class.

The corrupt Capitol tries to manipulate humans as well as the nonhuman world to lose agency. They frighten the district citizens away from interacting with the wilderness.

Unable to resist, most remain with broken spirits inside the fence: In the autumn, a few brave souls sneak into the woods to harvest apples. But always in sight of the Meadow.

Rue is a small yellow flower that grows in the Meadow. The affective bond between the natural setting and the empathetic characters forms a strong counterpart to the corruption, cruelty and perverted nature of the Capitol.

In opposition to modern industrial food production, which makes the animals invisible and avoids any kind of relationship, the hunter gains knowledge of animals — prey or fellow predators — and develops respect for them. Hunting for food relies on understanding of and rapport with the animals. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest?

And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

You have said from the start that The Hunger Games story was intended as a trilogy. Did it actually end the way you planned it from the beginning? Very much so. While I didn't know every detail, of course, the arc of the story from gladiator game, to revolution, to war, to the eventual outcome remained constant throughout the writing process.

What is the biggest difference between writing a novel and writing a screenplay? There were several significant differences. Time, for starters. When you're adapting a novel into a two-hour movie you can't take everything with you. The story has to be condensed to fit the new form.

Then there's the question of how best to take a book told in the first person and present tense and transform it into a satisfying dramatic experience. In the novel, you never leave Katniss for a second and are privy to all of her thoughts so you need a way to dramatize her inner world and to make it possible for other characters to exist outside of her company. Finally, there's the challenge of how to present the violence while still maintaining a PG rating so that your core audience can view it.

A lot of things are acceptable on a page that wouldn't be on a screen. But how certain moments are depicted will ultimately be in the director's hands.

I have a few seeds of ideas floating around in my head but--given that much of my focus is still on The Hunger Games --it will probably be awhile before one fully emerges and I can begin to develop it.

She fails and I end up making her fall. I walk outside-and for some reason it is cold out-and cry. He kicks the remainings down and we run for the trees.

I see peoples mouth move but I don't hear them all that well. I blacked out in the middle of fight! I shoot like Gale with the updated bow and arrows, shooting the deer right in the eye.

But instead of warmth, I feel an icy rigidity take over mybody. I can feel my pulse pounding in my temples. I look down as they go on the stage.
