Katniss Everdeen is very protective and caring to her family members and close friends. From the beggining all she does is protect her younger sister Prim, she volunteers to be in the Hunger Games and throughout their lives she always kept her fed and safe. She also shows this in the games when she begins taking care of Peeta.
Symbolism: "As soon as I'm in the trees, I retrieve a bow and sheath of arrows from a hollow log."(5)
President Snow is the president of the capitol, which is the creator of the Hunger Games after the great war that end 74 years ago. The games were a way for the capital to gain and keep control of all the districts and residents of those districts. The capitol is full of money, resources, and power, while the districts have nearly nothing especially district 12.
Foreshadowing: "Her first reaping. She's about as safe as you can get, since she's only entered once. I wouldn't let her take any tesserae."(15)
The theme of the Hunger Games is protecting family. This is shown because no matter what happens, Katniss is always there to protect Prim, Peeta, and any others she cares about. And in the end because of this, they are there for her as well.
Imagery: "When i wake up, the other side of the bed is cold. My fingers stretch out, seeking Prim's warmth but finding only the rough canvas cover of the matress. She must have had bad dreams and climbed in with our mother."(1)
from the beggining of the books Katniss has always had her bow and arrows, this symbolizes safety and protection. this is because whether in district 12 or in the games, her archery skills have kept herself and other protected.
This quote shows foreshadowing because Katniss talks about how safe Prim is for the reaping compaired to others and has no concern of her being picked. Although this provides security for readers that she wont be picked, it does raise suspicion and she is picked anyway.
This quote on the first page shows the great imaery used throughout the book. Collins depicts all the nature and other scenes in the book so vividly, readers are able to feel as though they are there with the characters.
