Short Answer Be able to COMPLETELY answer the following questions. Each answer needs to be at least 5-7 sentences in paragraph form. You may put your answers on another sheet of paper. 1. What was the purpose of the Hunger Games? The purpose of the Hunger Games is the districts’ repentance for rebelling against the Capitol (74 years ago during the “Dark Days”). It is also a yearly reminder that the Capitol can and will make them pay if they ever try to rebel again. 2. What is desensitization (define it in your own words) AND how did the author express this theme in the novel? Desensitization is to make someone less likely to feel shock or distress at scenes of cruelty, violence, or suffering by overexposure to such images. Suzanne Collins expresses this through the Capitol- sponsored Hunger Games event, which is mandatory viewing for all the citizens of Panem. The Capitol audience treats the tributes as forms of entertainment rather than actual human beings. Because it isn’t their own children who are killed, they feel no compassion toward the district children. Even the tributes are desensitized, or at least do not allow themselves to be sensitive toward one another. The Career tributes actually train for the event. 3. Give 3 examples of how Katniss showed rebellion against the Capitol in the novel. Some examples include: Hunting illegally in the woods, trading in the Hob, wearing the mockingjay pin, shooting the arrow at the Gamemakers, covering Rue’s body in flowers, pretending to eat the poisonous berries, pretending to be madly in love with Peeta. 4.
