More About Space and Place in the Hunger Games by Deidre Anne Evans Garriott; Whitney Elaine Jones; Julie Elizabeth Tyler
 
 
 
Overview
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.
