Conflict: Katniss has to fight for her life in the Hunger Games, constantly having to decidehow to strategize. She is angry at the Capitol, but cannot fight them directly. Thegovernment could put her in family in danger at any time.Setting: Katniss lives in District 12, in the country Panem. Panem consists of 12 districts andthe Capitol. There used to be a District 13, but that was destroyed by the Capitol years ago. The country is on North America, and this takes place in the far future. Each district is incharge of a job.

Theme: The government (Capitol) is corrupt. They are oppressive to the districts, and District13 rebelled. The Capitol now punishes all of Panem by holding Hunger Games every year toprove to the people that the Capitol controls them and they have no say.
Protagonist: The main character is Katniss Everdeen. Her mother and sister live with her in District12, where her father was killed in a mining accident. The story is in first-person, from her point of view. She is a humble girl, raised to hunt with her best friend Gale.Antagonist: In the Games, Cato is the main antagonist because he is after Katniss so that he can win.Overall, the Capitol is the main enemy. The Capitol controls everyone with its power and is corrupt. Itis made up of leaders who also evaluate each Tribute in the Hunger Games.Symbolism: Katniss and Rue's friendship. This is proof/a symbol that not all people in Panem like thekilling of the Hunger Games. Even though the Capitol encourages people to watch it and enjoy it, Ruegenuine friendship shows that the Capitol does not actually force. People still have free will.Caesar Flickerman's change of make-up: shows that Caesar is never really himself. He is alwaysbehind a mask, acting for the Capitol to please the audiences. We don't know his true motives, andhe might not even care.Irony: Peeta actually having feelings for Katniss even though it was supposed to be an act. He alsobegan to show hatred towards her before the games began.Katniss running towards the Cornucopia even though Haymitch told her not to. I guess I expected herto be rebellious, but I thought she trusted Haymitch enough to obey him. It's actually a good thingshe grabbed the orange backpack because she needed it.
